Did you know that it’s possible to visit Astrid Lindgren’s home on Dalagatan in Stockholm? This is where Astrid lived between 1941 and 2002, in a three-bedroom apartment above restaurant Wasahof. Yesterday the award office experienced a fantastic guided tour by expert Lena Törnqvist, librarian who has been responsible for the Astrid Lindgren Archive at the Royal Library in Stockholm (many thanks indeed, Lena!). It´s a really special feeling you get when entering Astrid’s home, like she´s only temporarily out to do some errands. All furnishing and personal items has remained unchanged and the flat has been preserved exactly like when Astrid lived there.
