Leeds Book Award ceremony

Filed under: awards,events — Rhiannon Lassiter @ 1:17 pm

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.
