Limited Capacity seats available


Magnus Ljunggren a dyslectic and an author, will tell his own story of what it was like to grow up with dyslexia and how he overcame it. Being dyslectic is being at war with the alphabet. At first Magnus was losing this war. He didn’t want to write at all. It made him feel stupid and humiliated. He got scolded and laughed at a lot. Then Magnus discovered the joy of telling stories, and the words became nothing more than a tool to use - and dyslexia lost its grip over him. Today Magnus has written 24 books.
