Guus Kuijer made a two day visit to Vimmerby last week. He gave a lecture at the biannual Astrid Lindgren conference focusing on children’s right to be respected for what they are. Commenting on children’s literature he concluded -”Let’s strive for quality and not popularity”.

Astrid Lindgren’s relatives gave a much appreciated guided tour of the house where Astrid Lindgren spent her childhood. This and the museum of Astrid Lindgren’s life and works made a great impact on the writer who was also much impressed of her influence in public debate.

Guus Kuijer also had time for a walk in the park The World of Astrid Lindgren where visitors can experience characters from Astrid Lindgren’s books.
