Maresi goes to Washington
Right now the President of Finland and his wife are on a state visit to Washington. They brought gifts for the Obama family, and the gift for Sasha and Malia was my Maresi and Salla Simukka's Snow White-trilogy.
Which is just all kinds of cool and awesome. And I love that the President and his wife chose Finnish literature as a great example of exportable goods!
I wish I could find a story about this in English, but with google translate you can glean something from the Finnish papers. One story is here and another here.
