Presentation of the award recipient

Yesterday at the Swedish Institute for Children’s Books visitors had the chance to listen to a presentation of the 2012 award recipient, Guus Kuijer. The presentation was made by Elina Druker, member of the award jury, and she spoke of Kuijer’s uncompromising perspective of the child, and of his ability to simultaneously paint a perceptive picture of the adult world. A number of the authors books were discussed, and many of them, in several languages, were on display on this table outside of the lecture room.

Elina Druker also made a presentation of Guus Kuijer directly after the announcement on March 20. The video is available on demand on our web, check it out here.
