Björn Larsson

Björn Larsson subject for the Dedicafestival

It is with great honor we announce that this years Dedicafestival in Italy will be dedicated to our talented author Björn Larsson.

The festival takes place once a year for one week and is focused on one particular authorship. Björn Larsson’s novel Long John Silver was published in Italy in 1998 and quickly became a bestseller. Since then, his authorship has been widely known and he has received several international awards for his novels.

The Dedicafestival will acknowledge this authorship through readings, interviews, cinema, theatre and music. Björn Larsson’s importance as an author is summarized with the following quote:

“His books, even when abandoned the novelistic form, are characterized by the compelling stories; the pace; the thirst for freedom and truth that animates its protagonists. His writing is sober, elegant and pleasant, it is characterized by an apparent, induced lightness that does not require reflection, and helps create that mysterious link between a writer and his readers.”
