On Saturday, Januari 28, it was ten years since Astrid Lindgren (1907-2002) passed away. Astrid Lindgren’s Näs in Vimmerby, her childhood home and visitor’s centre, arranged a beautiful public program. Author and pediatirician (and member of the ALMA jury) Lars H Gustafsson spoke about the situation of children today and tomorrow. Astrid Lindgren’s Näs also has done a reprint of Astrid’s famous speech against violence and corporal punishment of children, Never Violence from 1978.
