What do you know about Nordic children's literature? Now you have the opportunity to meet a bunch of Nordic author and illustrator voices on one board. This year, Norway is responsible for the awarding of the Nordic Council's children's and youth literature award at the Norwegian Opera & Ballet. On the same day, we invite you to a meeting with this year's nominees from Denmark, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, the Sami language area, Åland, Sweden and Norway. There will be readings, conversations and the opportunity to talk with each writer and illustrator afterwards.

The Nordic Council Children's and Youth Literature Prize was established by the Nordic Council in 2012.

The award is awarded by a jury with members from the five Nordic countries in addition to the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Åland and the Sami language area.
