SCHEDULE (Swedish time CEST)

Storytelling with Emily Kilgore from Minnesota

11:00 ”The Whatifs” – storytelling from Minnesota for children
Start the day with a storytelling by author Emily Kilgore (a former Uppsala resident, now living in Minnesota) as she reads from her latest book. The Whatifs is about Cora and her Whatifs: little creatures that weigh her down with fear and worry-filled thoughts until she learns to shift her fears into positive, wonder-filled questions. A timely picture book about overcoming anxiety.
