Sonya Hartnett Got Rave Reviews

Sonya Hartnett is a star - that much became clear during her visit to Sweden in the Spring of 2008. Enthusiastic young readers, enthusiastic critics, and enthusiastic promoters of reading lined her way.

Some of the award week highlights were the award lecture at the Stockholm House of Culture, a speech delivered at the Parliament Library, meeting with children in Stockholm and pedagouges in Lund. And, last but not least, she received the diploma symbolic of the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award from the hand of H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden at a festive ceremony at the open-air museum Skansen.
