Double congrats to Elina Hirvonen, winner of two prizes!!

We’re happy to announce that author Elina Hirvonen has won the Villa Karo Bronze Panther Cultural Prize! The Bronze Panther Prize is awarded annually to a person, company, or community that has significantly contributed mutual understanding and reduced prejudices between different cultures.

Elina Hirvonen has also been selected as the Author of the Year 2017 in Helsinki!
"Hirvonen has dealt with many important and painful topics in her books and movies, such as the fear of diversity and the mental breakdown of a young person. The language in her books is crystal clear and expressive. She does not preach but makes it visible. Hirvonen tries to understand even when she cannot accept it”, the Jury said.
