Meeting with children in Vimmerby

On Tuesday May 27 Barbro Lindgren visited pupils at the Astrid Lindgren School in Vimmerby.

The children had brought questions and wondered, among other things, about Barbro Lindgren’s childhood, about her books and her favourite story.

- It was good fun meeting the children who were so interested. It tends to be very good response when you sit and talk. Moreover, the children had made drawings and poems. Many of them were quite good, I almost thinking of stealing them, Barbro Lindgren said with a smile.

After the meeting, Barbro Lindgren signed books for the children.

The program that day also included a meeting with participants of this year’s Astrid Lindgren Conference in Vimmerby.
