2024 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award Nomination

What do A Book a Day, LeVar Burton, Atinuke, and Elizabeth Acevedo have in common? We were all nominated for the 2024 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award!

Created by the Swedish government in 2002 to honor the legacy of author, editor, and activist Astrid Lingren, this award shines a light on the importance of reading and promotes the right of every child to have access to great stories.

We are honored to be in such great company, with 245 authors, illustrators, storytellers, activists, and literacy organizations representing 68 different countries! We will find out in April if ABaD is the winner of this prestigious award. In the meantime, we remain focused on our work here in Philadelphia. Tusen tack (a thousand thanks!) to the nominating committee!

A Book a Day is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
