In two weeks the world will know who the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award jury has appointed as 2016 Laureate.
After a year of studying the works of 215 nominated candidates, the jury will come to the final decision. Jury Chairman Boel Westin announces the name or names of the laureates at 1:00 pm CET on April 5th right after the last jury meeting.
The news will be out in Bologna and Stockholm simultaneously as the announcement is broadcast by link from Stockholm to Bologna. Viewers can also follow the announcement live on our web.
Will it be an author, illustrator, storyteller or a reading promotion individual or an organisation? Keep an eye in our social media channels or follow us on www.alma.se/en for instant news about the Laureate (s)!
