Stockholm at its best

Today Meg participated in the award ceremony for the reading promotion project Children and Books at outdoor museum Skansen in Stockholm.

Winners of the competition “A World Class Book” were rewarded at the Solliden stage by Meg among others, eleven-year-olds from Adolf Fredrik’s Music School made some absolutely lovely performances, and the winning contributions and Meg’s books were exhibited in the Brage Hall.

After a fantastic lunch at Gubbhyllan (approx. the old man’s shelf), Meg met Radio Sweden and Swedish Newspaper Sydsvenskan in the so called Ottoman room, as you can see (last pic) the room was already taken by someone wearing a fez…

Enjoy the pics of today!
