Marit Törnqvist, the prominent Dutch-Swedish author and illustrator is a great supporter of the Read with Me project. She has already granted the copyright of four of her books to this project: the “Red Bird” by Astrid Lindgren, “Bigger than a dream” by Jef Aerts and “Pikko, die Hexe” by Toon Tellegen, and “The Happy Island”, all illustrated by Marit (the latter also written by her). She has came to Iran twice since 2016. In April 2018 she visited Iran for the second time to promote “The dialogue between two diverse worlds” exhibition.
