The winner of this year’s Astrid Lindgren award in memory of the late Swedish writer of children’s books is a Palestinian institute promoting reading and community education in the West Bank and Gaza.

The citation says the Tamer Institute has for 2 decades stimulated the desire of Palestinian young people desire to read despite harsh conditions - using the power of books to strengthen courage, identity and tolerance.

The Swedish prize is the biggest in the world for authors of children’s books, libraries and literature-promoting organizations and is valued at 700,000 US dollars.

The Swedish government created the award in honor of the world-famous Swedish creator of Pippi Longstocking, Carlsson on the Roof and other literary characters.
