Anniversary Seminar #1:
Bonnier’s publishing heritage; meet owners, authors and unique documents!

21 Feb 2024, at 15.00 - 17.00

The archives of the major book publishers form part of our cultural heritage and are important sources for researchers. Meet publishers, authors and researchers in a discussion about source materials, publishing and the business of culture.

In the first of our four anniversary seminars, during our 50th anniversary year, we give a unique insight into what is hidden in the historical archives of a large book publisher. Come meet:

  • Writers Jens Liljestrand, Carina Burman, Bengt Jangfeldt and professor Anna Williams about the benefits – and joy – of delving deep into original scripts and author correspondence. 
  • Publisher Abbe Bonnier and CEO Nelly Bonner in a conversatin with our head of research Anders Houltz, about their view on reasearch into the Bonnier files and the archive of late author Lars Norén. 
  • Also: listen to “Fridas visor” by Birger Sjöberg, performed by our own Krister Hillerud and Gustav Norqvist-Svensson.

Moderator is Tobias Svanelid. And as a bonus, we will put on display a selection of original documents from the publishing archives, shown only this time.

  • When: Wed 21 Feb, kl 15.00 – 17.00
  • Where: Centrum för Näringslivshistoria, Grindstuvägen 48–50, Bromma.
