Aarhus 2017 joins forces with the renowned Hay Festival to present the first International Children’s Literature Festival in Denmark. 39 of the best European children’s authors under 40 have been invited to write new works based on the theme ‘journey’. Hay Festival has worked with the '39 concept' all over the world – in Arabia, Africa, Central and South America.
