Author and director Saara Turunen has been recognised by the Finnish government for her contribution to culture today! The annual Finland Prize is granted by the Ministry of Education and Culture to eight recipients in recognition of their work – spanning music, literature, art and architecture. Alongside Saara, this year’s recipients also included singer Saara Aalto, and author Sirpa Kähkönen, who all received their awards from minister Sanni Grahn-Laasonen.
Saara’s 2015 Helsingin Sanomat Prize-winning debut novel, Love/Monster, published in paperback in October, also takes place in the theatre world and exemplifies her ability to distil the feelings and contradictions of modern life, and in getting to the heart of the matter.
