The Swedish Academy for Children’s Books is an association dedicated to the promotion of good literature for children and young people. It strives to influence politicians, institutions, and public opinion in the area of children’s literature. The Academy has 18 members, who are all authors and illustrators of books for children and young people.
Yesterday it was announced that Sara B. Elfgren is elected for the academy. She is going to sit on chair number 4, previously held by Lennart Hellsing, Martin Widmark, and Katarina von Bredow, among other great Swedish children’s authors. On chair number 15 sits another Grand author, Petrus Dahlin. A big hurray for these fantastic news, and for all the great work the academy does for children’s literature!
