Posted on 11/07/2022 in Awards

We are delighted and proud to announce that Kerstin Ekman has been awarded Norrland’s Literature Prize 2022 (Norrlands Litteraturpris 2022). The nomination reads:

‘In a seemingly straightforward and unassuming novel, a great existential depth is conveyed. Here is human impact on nature, not abstract analyses, or cries, but an acquired experience in everyday life.’

The monetary award is 10, 000 SEK.

The prize was instituted 1973 and was initially granted to a promising authorship from Norrland – the largest province in Sweden, but since a few years back it is given to the previous years best book with a strong connection to the region.
