Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award

Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned.

The Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award was established in 2002 by the Swedish government, to honour the memory of Swedish children’s author Astrid Lindgren, and to “promote interest in children’s and young adult literature around the world”.

The award is presented annually to one or more recipients, who may be authors, illustrators, oral storytellers, or individuals or institutions engaged in reading promotion. Winners receive SEK 5 million, making this the biggest international children’s and young adult literature award in the world.
