Meyer Trumps Rowling at Galaxy British Book Awards


The Galaxy British Book Awards (who tout themselves as The Oscars of the book world) were held this past weekend. Married television presenters and Book Club gurus Richard and Judy were on hand to host the gala.

Two mention-worthy wins were Barack Obama’s Dreams From My Father taking Biography of the Year (the author did not turn up to collect – something about running a country), and Stephenie Meyer trumping JK Rowling on Rowling’s hometurf to win the ‘Best Children’s Book’ category for her Twilight Saga. Boo-ya! Take that, Beedle the Bard. In your face!
