New Brunswick Author to be Guest at International Literary Festival
Launch of Second Macedonian Translation
K. V. Johansen, New Brunswick author of twenty books for children and adults, is to be one of two main participants at the “Days of Canadian Literature” Festival in Skopje, the Republic of Macedonia, April 26-28. There, she will attend the launch of the Macedonian edition of her children’s novel, Torrie and the Pirate-Queen, Тори и пиратската кралица, translated by Marija Todorova and published by Vermilion. This is the second of her Torrie series to be translated into Macedonian; in 2010 the translation of Torrie and the Snake-Prince, Тори и принцот-змија, received the first-ever “International Ana Frank Award for Children’s Literature”, Меѓународната Награда „Ана Франк“ за најдобра книга, for children’s literature in Macedonian. Johansen, a scholar who has written two books on the history of children’s fantasy literature, will also be taking part in a discussion of multicultural voices in Canadian literature.
Johansen’s travel is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
