The French-Moroccan author Leïla Slimani has, with only two published novels, quickly become a favorite in the French literary public. “Chanson douce”, which is now available in Norwegian, explores the interaction within a small family from upper middle class that just hired a nanny, and was awarded the prestigious Goncourt Prize in 2016.

Leïla Slimani is a journalist and has also published several case studies, among others about the lack of sexual freedom in Morocco. In 2017, she was appointed Emmanuel Macron’s representative for the francophonie. During this event, she will talk to critic and editor of Vinduet Maria Horvei about class, power games and the modern family.
