About the event

The picture book Mora mi by renowned illustrator Trond Bredesen was published by No Comprendo Press in 2023.

The book depicts Trond Bredesen's mother with dementia at the end of her life in an honest and unsentimental way, but with humor and love. Work on the book began when his mother moved into an institution, where he took notes and drew what she said and did. Through pictures and movies, he tried to preserve the time, place and situation. His mother's confused comments, an unappetizing toilet seat and a bedside table filled with medication, chocolate, energy drinks and diapers became interesting subjects and inspiration for the script. During the two years his mother lived in the home, a large pile of documents was accumulated that eventually became the book Mora mi.

During the presentation, we will get an insight into Bredesen's extensive work on this very personal book. There will also be opportunities to ask questions along the way.

After the book presentation, there will be a book signing where you can take home a signed copy of Mora mi!
