Astrid Lindgren Prize Winners Arrive

Published måndag 25 maj 2009 kl 13.45
The Tamer Institute For Community education

The winners of this year's Astrid Lindgren memorial award have arrived in Sweden - the Palestinian Tamer Institute supporting libraries and books for youngsters in the occupied territories.

The Tamer Institute for Community and Education is based in Ramalla. Established in 1989 at a time when there was practically no books for young people there, the Institute now co-ordinates work in 70 libraries in the West Bank and in Gaza, and published books as well, mailing them into the isolated Gaza strip.

The Astrid Lindgren award, honouring the memory of Sweden's Astrid Lindren - the creator of Pipi Longstocking, Karlsson on the Roof and other characters, is the world's largest prize for children and young people's literature. The award is valued at 5 million Swedish kronor - nearly 670,000 US dollars.
