Meg Rosoff and Daniel Hahn

How I Live Now

Venue: STORE SAL

The winner of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award 2016 talks about her writing, literature for younger readers and her novel How I Live Now, a contemporary children’s classic. Daisy, 15, thinks she knows all about love. Her mother died giving birth to her, and now her dad has sent her away for the summer, to live in the English countryside with cousins she’s never met. There she discovers what real love is: something violent, mysterious and wonderful. Her world is turned upside down and a perfect summer explodes into a million bewildering pieces. Rosoff’s other novels for young people include Just in Case (winner of the 2007 Carnegie Medal), The Bride’s Farewell and What I Was, described by The Times as “Samuel Beckett on Ecstasy”.

Thank You for the Decapitation – Horror Poetry for Children

Venue: SCENETRAPPEN

Monsters are hiding behind the curtain and corpses are stored in the freezer! You are not convinced? See for yourself when Frederik Hansen and Andreas Nederland performs “Thank you for the decapitation LIVE”. The show is based on their eponymous children’s book. The performance is enhanced by shaking sheet metal, rubbing balloons and munching onions, making the sound effects just right for Frederik and Andreas’ performance. Children in the audience are part of the sound effects – and they also have a hand in deciding how high on the horrible “Scar-o-meter” the performance goes.
