Shaun Tan arrives to Stockholm

Shaun Tan, this year’s recipient of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, will arrive in Stockholm on the 21nd of May. We are all hoping that the weather will be a little more welcoming by then … Waiting for him is an intense schedule of events, interviews, work shops and meetings. The whole visit will end with the Award Ceremony at Stockholm Concert Hall on the 31st of May.

Invitations to the ceremony have just been sent out and we can now confirm that the award will be presented to Shaun Tan by H.R.H Crown Princess Victoria in the presence of Minister for Foreign Trade Ewa Björling. The compere of the evening will be Mark Levengood.
