Traditional Helsinki Comics Festival will be organized at Suvilahti this weekend on 2nd and 3rd September.

The French Institute would like to highlight an interesting discussion session held on Sunday at 4 pm at Kattilahalli. The discussion moderated by Onni Mustonen and commented by a Finnish translator Saara Pääkkönen and WSOY’s Managing Director Mikael Ahlström is all about the “L’arabe du futur” books written by a famous French cartoonist Riad Sattouf.

Riad Sattouf could not attend the festival this year but will be coming soon to Finland as a guest of WSOY and the French Institute. On the 16th of October Sattouf will be interviewed by Jeannette Bougrab, director of the Institute.
