Señor del Libro! Who are you wearing?

Oz and Ends congratulates Banco del Libro of Venezuela for receiving the 2007 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, given by the Swedish government.

Now I haven’t actually read any of Señor del Libro’s books. (I assume it’s not Señora del Libro--that would be embarrassing.) But as soon as I puzzle out his website, which of course is in Spanish, I plan to order some translations from the library.

Because with past winners like Katherine Paterson, Philip Pullman, and Maurice Sendak, this award puts Banco del Libro in some very high literary company. His speech at the award ceremony in May will no doubt be--


Banco del Libro is what?

Oh, this is embarrassing.
