With "Pippi Longstocking", "Ronja Robber's Daughter" and "Michel from Lönneberga", the Swedish author Astrid Lindgren has been delighting children and adults worldwide for decades. However, her own childhood ended abruptly when she became pregnant at the age of 18. During the 1920's in Sweden, that was an almost unforgivable scandal. "Becoming Astrid" tells the story of how Lindgren found the strength to overcome the hostility of her surroundings and lead a self-determined life as a modern woman.
