Younger festival audiences are treated to the tandem of Ukrainian artists Romana Romanyshyn and Andriy Lesiv, Danish young adult author Janne Teller, and Swedish children’s author and psychologist Jenny Jägerfeld, whose works deal with finding a balance between being yourself and the societal expectations.
