upcoming base exhibition, "Astrid Lindgren and the power of stories"
In the early 1900s, a little girl hears the first story of her life. The words become magic and set her childhood mind into flux that never ceases. As the girl, named Astrid, grows up, she continues to write to entertain the child she once was. Her words will go on to leave a huge impression on people all over the world – and it all began with that first encounter with the world of stories.
