Rowling Wins Andersen Award

J.K. Rowling won the first Hans Christian Andersen Literature Prize, presented October 19, 2010 at Andersen’s home town of Odense, Denmark. Rowling accepted the award, which includes a plaque and a cash prize of 500,000 Kroner ($93,500).

The prize is given to a writer whose work can be compared to that of Andersen (1805-1875), who is best known for classic fairy tales including “The Ugly Duckling” and “The Little Mermaid”.
