The winning entries vying for the Richard Booth Prize for Non-Fiction were announced during a special lunch at Peterstone Court last week. This year’s prize had been judged by Rachel Cooke, critically acclaimed writer at the Observer newspaper and author of the book, ‘Her Brilliant Career: Ten Extraordinary Women of the Fifties.’
Richard Booth announced and presented the first prize, from a strong field, to Jo Jones for her piece “Jane”. Lynn Trowbridge came in second with “The Compassionate Thief” and Juliet Foster took third place with “The Comforting Cloud”.
Congratulations to Jo as the inaugural winner and to everyone who took part.
