Arthur C. Clarke award judge

Filed under: awards — Rhiannon Lassiter @ 1:23 pm

I’ve been invited to be a judge for the Arthur C. Clarke award.

I’ll be one of two Science Fiction Foundation nominated judges for the 2008/2009 period. I’m still grinning from ear to ear about it. As well as the prestige, fifty science-fiction novels will be winging their way to me. I don’t dare buy another book this year!

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.

Visit the events photos page to see more images from this and other events I’ve attended.
