Shaun Tan to Children & Books at Skansen

For two days the large outdoor museum Skansen in the heart of Stockholm presented lots of activities on books and literature. The theme is Children & Books, a project which aims to stimulate children's love for reading and language development.

Shaun Tan participated in the award ceremony at the Soliden stage at 10:30 am together with Lotta Edholm, School commissioner from the Education Department of Stockholm.

Children & Books is a collaboration between the Education Department of Stockholm, Stockholm Public Library, Skansen and Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award.
