Abingdon Welcomes Prize Author

It was announced a short while ago... "U.S. President Barack Obama has captured the Biography of the Year prize at the Galaxy British Book Awards for his bestseller, Dreams from My Father... Book of the Year was handed to The Suspicions Of Mr. Whicher by Kate Summerscale."

The Book of the Year winner, Kate Summerscale, was in Abingdon, doing a talk, and signing books in the Roysse Room. This is thanks to Mostly Books who were promoting her book before it became famous.

As to the other prize winning author... here is a picture of him making an impromtu stop in Abingdon VA, exactly a year ago.
