Orange Prize Awards Ceremony

I had a brilliant time at the awards ceremony at the Royal Festival Hall last night; making my way up the orange carpet and being greeted with a glass of  champagne was just the beginning! The atmosphere was fantastic, although one of the best moments for me was meeting Emma Donoghue, whose shortlisted novel Room was our Orange Prize youth panel’s winner.

Above all, congratulations to Téa Obreht, whose debut novel, The Tiger’s Wife, was the 2011 winner (and the youngest ever winner) of the Orange Prize! To read my full review of The Tiger’s Wife, click here.
