Yesterday night we took the chance to celebrate the winners of the German Children’s Literature Award – the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis. The ceremony took as usual place at the book fair’s Congress Hall. 29 books from 20 publishing houses were nominated, among them Eike Schönfeld who translated artist and 2011 ALMA laureate Shaun Tan’s Rules of summer in the picture book category. Vivian Perkovic guided the audience with lots of humour through the program.
All laureates are presented here!
