Sharon Miller,  Session Producer admits to being a “late adopter” but is now a convert.

Remarkably – if not alarmingly – I grew up without ‘Pippi Longstocking’ or ‘Moomins’ in my childhood.  My loss.  However…the upside is that I’ve been able to discover Pippi and Moomins as an adult – and understand quite how extraordinary they both  are.  The webinar on Friday afternoon at 2pm is a unique opportunity to find out and understand more about these two fascinating women – Tove Jansson and Astrid Lindgren, who created ‘Moomins’ and ‘Pippi Longstocking’, respectively.  It’s an opportunity not to be missed. Two women whose lives were the seedbeds for their stories, characters and worlds that – for 75 years – have beguiled, enthralled and captivated readers and audiences – whatever their age.  Most importantly – maybe – both women wrote from their hearts  – not from a pursuit of toy sales.  And so – they speak to our hearts as readers and viewers – which makes an unconscious and powerful bond. Come and celebrate these two icons of the Children’s World, with conversation and revelation, led by Frank Cottrell-Boyce.
