Congratulations Jenny Jägerfeld!

We are proud to announce that Jenny Jägerfeld is on the shortlist of authors nominated to the 2018 award. 

The shortlist is composed by Swedish librarians and the prize will be awarded to “a writer of literary fiction who within the reader has entered the story of mankind in the world. The prize winner can be from any part of the world and must have two published works, one of which within the last ten years.”

The winner will be announced October 14th and presented at a formal event with a grand celebration December 10th 2018.

The New Academy was founded to warrant that an international literary prize will be awarded in 2018, but also as a reminder that literature should be associated with democracy, openness, empathy and respect. Read more about The New Academy.
