Katarina Taikon

October 19, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Roma activist Katarina Taikon was born in a tent and came to change the course of Swedish history. Denied education, she learned to read in her late twenties, and later, with her stories about a Romani girl, became one of the most-read authors of children’s books in Sweden.
