Zahedan, May 2, IRNA – Iran’s book-reading promoter Abdolhakim Bahar has been selected for the 2021 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award (ALMA) in Sweden.

Established in 2002 by the Swedish National Council for Cultural Affairs to commemorate writer Astrid Lindgren, the event is aimed at promoting interest in children's and young adult literature.

Authors, illustrators, oral storytellers, as well as reading promoters, are eligible for the award.
