Silberne Feder 2017 for Anna Woltz

5 July 2017

Gips oder wie ich an einem einzigen Tag die Welt reparierte (published by Carlsen Verlag), by Anna Woltz and her translator Andrea Kluitmann, has been awarded the 2017 Silberne Feder. The German association of women doctors selected Woltz’s book from a record 100-plus submissions.

The jury praised the language of the book, which allows the reader to empathize to the full with the humorous yet moving experiences of a strong girl.

Earlier this year the novel was awarded with the Katholischen Kinder- und Jugendbuchpreis der Deutschen Bischofskonferenz and last year with the Luchs award.
