Guus Kuijer to visit Sweden

Good news! Guus Kuijer is to visit Sweden in May to participate in the award week.

“It’s fantastic news that this fascinating author is coming to Sweden to meet the Swedish reading public,” says Larry Lempert, chairman of the ALMA jury. “I’m really looking forward to his lecture and reading at the House of Culture (Kulturhuset) in Stockholm on 22 May.”

Guus Kuijer will round off his visit with the award ceremony at the Stockholm Concert Hall on May 28, at which he will be presented with the award by H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria. The award ceremony will be hosted by Daniel Sjölin and Johanna Koljonen, two most appreciated writers/journalists in Sweden today.

“I’m deeply grateful to receive this award. I hope that it will positively influence the position of children’s literature in the Netherlands and abroad,” says Kuijer.
