Visit to IJB

The Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award and the Tamer Institute visited the Internationale Jugendbibliothek in München.

The International Youth Library is the largest library for international children's and youth literature in the world. Ever since it was opened in 1949 by Jella Lepman, it has been continuously expanded to an internationally recognised centre for the world's children's and youth literature.

The Tamer Institute and the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award participated in an event on children's literature along with, amongst others Dr. Christiane Raabe, General Director of the Internationale Jugendbibliothek, Ruth Jacoby, Swedish Ambassador to Germany, Dr. Thomas Steinfeld, Arts Editor of Süddeutsche Zeitung.
