Time for this year’s Debutant prize!

It´s finally time for Borås Tidning debutant prize to be awarded. It is an annual prize and it is especially exciting for us because it’s happening here in Borås, in cooperation with the University. The awards ceremony takes place on Thursday evening at Borås City Theatre’s main stage where “Lilla Debutant priset” (Little Debutant prize) also is awarded. All these books are written in swedish so if you want to practice the language you have a great opportunity to do so.

If you want to know more about the authors, please read what some of Sweden’s literary critics think about this year’s debutantes. (only in swedish) This year it stands between  För vad sorg och smärta byThom Lundberg, Skuggan by Marit Furns, Tripprapporter by Tone Schunnesson, och vi fortsatte att göra någonting rörande by Elis Burrau and Storm i den pelare som bär by Andreas Lundberg. This year it is one poetry collection and four novels that participates. Associated with this price we are displaying these books at the information desk in the library, welcome to borrow!
