Jenny Jägerfeld at the August Prize

This year’s August Prize ceremony will be a digital event. On November 23rd we will be able to enjoy the ceremony live, and it will be hosted by Yukiko Duke and our author (and previous August Prize-winner) Jenny Jägerfeld!

In 2010 Jenny Jägerfeld won the August Prize in the category “Best Swedish children’s and YA-novel of the year” with the book Me on the Floor, Bleeding. Now, ten years later, she will be hosting the prestigious ceremony in an online live event.

“It feels so good to be a part of handing out the August Prize this year!” Jenny says. “Especially since I know from my own experience how incredibly meaningful it can be to win.”

The award ceremony starts at 16.30 on November 23rd and you can watch it on the August Prize’s website or on their Facebook page.
