An exciting weekend for Clare Owen, author of Zed and the Cormorants, who describes herself as ‘beyond chuffed’ that not only did Zed win the YA Holyer An Gof award for 2022, but Clare herself won the Ann Trevenen Jenkin cup for authorship of a book for children or Young Adults.
We’ve agree the cup can stay with Clare for the year – it’s all hers! We get a certificate.
There will be an interview between Tiffany Truscott, who chaired the ceremony and Clare and winners in other categories on Radio Cornwall in the near future, when we find it we’ll let you know!
The Holyer An Gof awards are administered by Gorsedh Kernow
Voting has now closed in the Saboteur2014 awards, so it’s all out of your hands now. However, you can come along on Saturday 31st to the FREE book fair and readings 1:30-6, at the Jericho Tavern, Walton Street, Oxford OX2 6AE, and for the modest fee of £5 to the award ceremony 6.30- 9.30(ish?) tickets here
Arachne Author Emily Cleaver is one of the performers in the afternoon, reading from London Lies, and if we WIN we’ll be reading a snippet of something (she says, mentally reviewing the time scales for rehearsing that) from Award short-listed Weird Lies
You can also come and hear readings from Award short-listed Weird Lies (I get a warm happy feeling every time I type that) and Lovers’ Lies at our BrockleyMax event, Other Worlds the following day, Sunday 1st June 7pm at Misty Moon
