And the Winner is...
So, it’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights. It’s time to announce some of the highlights from the London Review Bookshop events programme, in the form of a slightly-amusing-if-you’re-easily-pleased Oscar-type awards ceremony. With no further ado let’s move on to the lucky winners:
Best-Dressed goes to the beautifully dapper Miranda July who came to sign copies of her novel The First Bad Man. See also Longest Queue for a Public Signing.
Best Actress must go to Susie Harker, previously well known for her roles in Pride and Prejudice and House of Cards but now immortalised forever in the London Review Bookshop archive for her reading of Katherine Mansfield during Kirsty Gunn’s event for My Katherine Mansfield Project.
Most Joyful Poetry Reading has to be given to Carcanet's New Poetries VI with a special distinction for the reading by our very own John Clegg, who was a shoe-in for Most Useful Advice for Safe Lasso Handling - listen here; lasso info starts about 37 minutes in.
