Retrospective on a busy day: 12th June.
After lunch, the jury for the "BaarerRabe", prize for a children's or YA story, met for its final meeting. We'd received fewer manuscripts than the years before. However, the quality of the texts was, on the whole, better.
Quite quickly, three favourites emerged. It was no easy task to choose a winner from those. The jury members had some pretty strong arguments for each of them.

After the meeting, I went to Berne. Together with my mother, I wanted to attend the book launch of AUTILLUS friend Peter Kummer at the "Buchhandlung zum Zytglogge". He was presenting his art book "Gelmer".
