23 April 18:00 - 20:00Downtown Camper

Join us at our first event! 

Come and mingle with other international bookworms at our first Book Club event in Stockholm on April 23rd.

In The Local Sweden's Book Club, we're learning about Sweden through reading a different book each month. This month, we're reading A World Gone Mad – The Wartime Diaries of Astrid Lindgren, but you're very welcome to join our event if you haven't read the book!

We'll have a short talk from the Astrid Lindgren Company's Cilla Nergårdh about the Pippi Longstocking author's life and legacy, and there will be plenty of time to mingle with other Book Club members and The Local's team.

We'll be at the Downtown Camper by Scandic in Stockholm after work from 6pm on April 23rd, which is World Book Day. The event is free but places are limited, so please sign up to secure your spot.

We can't wait to see you there!

Cilla Nergårdh
Head of Communications at the Astrid Lindgren Company

Astrid Lindgren's Life and Legacy

"My background is mainly in publishing and communications, but my way into Astrid Lindgren’s authorship actually went through gardening…  When I turned 40 I quit my job and trained to be a gardener. I then ran my own business for several years until I was recruited Head of marketing for a huge gardening project at Astrid Lindgren’s Näs – her childhood home in Vimmerby. In 2015 I started working at The Astrid Lindgren Company."
