Soundtracks for Books

Sunday 7.7. 11:00 Valssaamo

Jussi Ahlroth (PJ), Sara B Elfgren, Nene Ormes, Mats Strandberg, Caitlin Sweet

The role of music in fiction is a tricky one. Do we need/want to listen to music when we write/read? Is there something specific that needs to be there, certain music that reminds us of something we’ve read? Do we “hear” music when we read about it? Is it possible to convey the sense of music via words?

How Do We Read?

Sunday 7.7. 12:00 Pannuhalli

Merja Polvinen (PJ), Stefan Ekman, Fionna O’Sullivan, Tommy Persson

This panel will share experiences of different kinds of reading practices. We will talk about actual physical situations of reading, the sensory and emotional experiences of reading, the attitudes called for by different kinds of genres and what happens when we read against the grain, as well as the underlying reasons for why such diverse practices and experiences might exist.
