Behind the Times - Times/Chicken House Prize

I’m a bit late getting to this - sorry, sick all weekend - but the winner of the second Times/Chicken House Prize is… >>drum roll<< Sophia Bennett with her book, Threads.

There’s an interview with the very chuffed prize winner in the Sunday Times

“I was a very, very happy 14-year-old,” Bennett says. “I love going back into that world; I dragged my stepdaughters to see High School Musical, not the other way around. I’ve always been fascinated by those rare children who can combine talent and dedication to achieve greatness.”

Back tomorrow (hopefully) with more from the weekend papers - better late than never!
