The Wenche Foss Honorary Award is awarded to a person, organization, or institution that can be strongly associated with Foss’ zest for life, communication skills, and commitment – both in and outside the artistic arena.
“This year’s winner of the Wenche Foss Honorary Award is a rare multi-talent… The jury would particularly like to highlight her excellent youth book, Being Young,” the jury writes in its justification.
BEING YOUNG was the best-selling YA book in Norway in 2018 and has sold over 100,000 copies in Norwegian. Foreign rights have been sold to 11 countries.
Other books in the series include BEING GROWN-UP and TO US FROM OUR ELDERS.
Linn is also currently on tour with her hit play, WAITING FOR GOD KNOWS.
Congratulations, Linn! 🎉
