Quentin Blake wins the Eleanor Farjeon Award!


We're delighted to announce that the winner of the 2012 Eleanor Farjeon Award is Quentin Blake!

We had so many incredible and inspirational nominees, who between them do so much for the world of children's literature, but we're sure you'll agree that Quentin Blake is a very worthy winner.

Thank you to everyone who came and made the evening such a success, and especially to our wonderful speakers, Shirley Hughes, Anne Harvey, and Emma Chichester Clark, who accepted the award for Quentin so brilliantly. We were also delighted that so many past recipients of the award could join us.

As usual, the Eleanor Farjeon award is the last event in our social calendar, so that's it for us for 2012, our 50th birthday year. Please renew your membership for 2013 to join in with all the fantastic events we've got planned!
