Nordic Writers Crossing Borders 2017
In 2017 we saw four Nordic writers visit Estonia. In both May and November youth at Toila library, Illuka School, Pärnu Kuninga-street school, Sütevaka gymnasium and Viljandi central lirary had the opportunity to take part of workshops about how to make and illustrate a book. The workshop was led by Finnish authors and illustrators Linda Bondestam and Jenny Lucander. In addition to illustrating workshops Estonian readers had the chance to meet Rakel Helmsdal – a Faroese writer and teacher of creative writing, artist and marionette actress, and Finnish-Swedish writer Maria Turtschaninoff.
