Anja Mugerli has been declared one of the 13 winners of the European Union Prize for Literature for 2021.

The fourth Slovenian author to win the prize, Mugerli convinced the jurors with Čebelja Družina (Bee Family) a book of seven stories. The recurring theme of the seven stories is the old Slovenian customs and traditions that are put into a new context or into a new, contemporary time frame where they gain on a new role. The family features as a central theme.
