Panel Marie Aude-Murail
L16, The Pod | Festival Pass
Our opening keynote this year reflects on the festival theme. The speakers will talk about the value and meaning of "Play" in creative writing and storytelling, and its role in the age of digital learning.
Marie Aude-Murail (France)
For many years now, Marie-Aude Murail has explored different veins of children’s literature. Whether it be political, realist, or fantasy, her motto is to never repeat herself and to never be where you expect her. After her PhD in literature at the Sorbonne, she devoted herself to writing. She received the Legion of Honor, the highest French distinction, for her contribution to children’s literature and the common good and the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2022.
