6 days, 4 hours, 30 min

Now there’s less than a week left until the 2011 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award is announced at Astrid Lindgrens Näs in Vimmerby, Sweden!

Astrid Lindgren Näs is where Astrid Lindgren was born, more than 100 years ago. Her childhood home is still intact and is open for visit all year around. A must for anyone interested in Astrid Lindgren’s work, since the environment at Näs was the source of much inspiration for her books.

Next to the childhood home stands the pavilion, the cultural center, where the announcement is held.   

Present at the announcement in Vimmerby is, of course, chairman of the jury Larry Lempert together with jurymembers Maria Lassén-Seger, Ulf Boëthius, Ulla Lundqvist, Lars H Gustafsson, Mats Berggren and Birgitta Fransson.

Just before 1 pm CET, Kerstin Brunnberg, chairman of the Swedish Arts Council will greet the audience.  After which Larry Lempert will read the jury’s citation and reveal the recipent(s). The announcement is followed by a presentation of the winner(s) by jurymember Maria Lassén-Seger.

The whole event will be broadcasted on our website as well as directly to Illustrator’s Café at Bologna Book Fair, Italy.
