Empathy for young people

Sweden’s Minister for Culture and Democracy Alice Bah Kuhnke comments this year’s Laureate, Meg Rosoff.

– Astrid Lindgren always took part for the young and I’m very pleased that the jury once again is rewarding a writer who so deeply expresses empathy for young people who have difficulties in settling in the adult world. Her books reflect young people’s thoughts about themselves and their idea about the world.
