Pippi Longstocking is always a protagonist
Pantone Color Institute has joined the celebrations for Pippi Longstocking's 75th birthday by creating a special color dedicated to the unstoppable girl with freckles: a bright shade of orange, which recalls the lively color of Pippi's braids.
Pantone Color Institute also participates in the Save The Children and The Astrid Lindgren Company campaign to support girls fleeing wars and poverty. The goal is to help them become strong and independent women, able to build a safer world for themselves, taking the strong and courageous Pippi as a model.
The Association of Independent Bookstores for Children, ALIR, organized the event: Pippi and the others - Tribute to Pippi and the girls of the North on June 25 at 5 pm in collaboration with the Drosselmeier Academy - school for booksellers and center for children's literature studies. A meeting to celebrate Pippi Longstocking, 75 years after the first publication. Pippi has influenced generations of girls and still remains a model for the new girls from the North who inhabit the shelves of bookstores and libraries. The event can be followed live on the association's Facebook page and YouTube channel.
