Leeds Book Award ceremony
I was a short-listed author for the Leeds Book Award and attended the award ceremony in Leeds where the winner was announced. The books are selected by Leeds students and each school did a presentation on their favourite book. The star of the event was the poet Craig Bradley, acting as Master of Ceremonies, who got everyone "rhyming it" in hip-hop style.
Unfortunately I didn't win, the prize went to The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne.
After the ceremony I signed books and talked to students and took photos with them.
Visit the events photos page to see more images from this and other events I've attended.
