Andri Snaer Magnason in conversation with Alejandra Martins

Climate change and creativity

Arequipa 2021, 

Andri Snaer Magnason is one of the foremost writers of child and young adult literature in Iceland, as well as a film director and the winner of various prestigious literary awards in many categories, including the 2013 Philip K. Dick Award and the 2021 Tiziano Terzani Prize in Italy. He has acted as the Vice-president of the Icelandic Union of Writers and has even been a presidential candidate for his country. His latest book, On Time and Water, a publishing success in various countries, is a fascinating reflection on the climate emergency, based on the views of the great global authorities on climate change mixed with mythology and family stories. This delicate work of non-fictional narrative makes a call to human beings to take responsibility for our home, Earth. He will talk about this urgent matter with Alejandra Martins.
