We are very excited to announce that Mårten Sandén was awarded The Astrid Lindgren Prize today for a meritorious authorship within the realm of Swedish literature for children & Young Adults.
Motivation is as follows:
For a comprehensive, rich and significant authorship within magical realism and suspense as well as everyday vulnerability, firmly anchored with young readers of all ages.
The prize was instituted by Rabén & Sjögren in 1967 to mark Astrid Lindgren’s 60th birthday. Since then, the prize has been awarded annually on 14th November.
