Astrid Lindgren was born 1902 and her parents were Samuel August and Hanna Ericsson. They lived on a rectory which was built in 1411 where Samuel August was a rectory tenant. Samuel was a good author and had good memory too. He remembered a lot of things from his childhood that he told his kids. While Hanna was extremly good at languages, Hanna wanted to become a teacher.
Astrid and her three siblings went on to a small school in Vimmerby there Astrid already was interested at writing and reading. One of her essays in school had been published in the newspaper and then the village called her Vimmerbys Selma Lagerlöf.
