Something For Everyone

Katherine Paterson did not travel alone. Joining her in her trip to Stockholm were great numbers of children and grandchildren - no less than 17 very proud family members.

An author who's career has the lengh and scope of Katherine Paterson has a lot to share when talking about her work. During the award week, she gave varied her tone and content so that both new, young readers and older die-hard fans were entertained.

The good mood was also apparent at the dignified award ceremony at the out-door museum Skansen, where both Ms Paterson and the Minister for Culture, as well as H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria wore great big smiles.
