In celebration of Swedish-speaking Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson’s 100th birthday on August 9, the Nordic Heritage Museum (3014 NW 67th St) will mark the occasion with a morning of activities centered around Jansson’s fairy tale characters, the Moomins.
All ages are welcome for the family-friendly celebration, which will feature crafts, cartoons, and music from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
In all, nine books were released in the Moomins series, along with five picture books, and a long-running comic strip. In March of this year, the New Yorker profiled Jansson’s work.
No RSVP is required for the event, with anyone interested in participating invited to drop-in at 11 a.m. There is a suggested donation of $5 per crafter.
