Astrid Lindgren’s birthday

Today, November 14th, we´re celebrating Astrid Lindgren’s (1907-2002) birthday! Here´s a lovely YouTube clip dated back to 1963. Astrid Lindgren is telling a story from the county of Småland (where she was born), in a legendary Swedish TV-show with Lennart Hyland.

Today is also the day for the announcement of Rabén & Sjögren’s Astrid Lindgren prize, instituted in 1967 to mark Astrid Lindgren’s 60th birthday. We´ll get back with more news about the prize winner later on this afternoon…!
