J. K. Rowling wins Danish Award

J.K. Rowling received the Hans Christian Andersen Literature Prize Tuesday in Denmark, in a presentation that coincided with the city’s annual Harry Potter Festival. This is a new prize and includes a cash award as well as a bronze sculpture of The Ugly Duckling. The prize is given to a writer whose work can be compared to that of Andersen.

Note that this is different from The Hans Christian Andersen Award sponsored by IBBY, the International Board on Books for Young People.
