The popular American fantasy author Tamora Pierce has made a lasting impact on the entire fantasy genre with her strong heroines and feminist themes. In March 2015, she pays her first visit to Denmark.
Tamora Pierce’s debut novel series The Song of the Lioness from 1983 tells the story of the girl Alanna, who switches identities with her twin brother, trains to become a knight, and proves her worth – despite being ‘just’ a girl. Strong heroines, feminist themes and exciting, well-constructed plots have since become a staple of Tamora Pierce’s fantasy novels, which have now entertained and inspired generations of readers around the globe – including Denmark.
In March 2015, Tamora Pierce will pay her first visit to Denmark, where her Danish publishers, Tellerup, will be proud to welcome her as the guest of honor at Fantasyfestival 2015.
