I am extremely fortunate to have been asked by the remarkable Anne Dondertman, Director of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, to deliver to Seltzer Memorial Lecture this year.

 

The lecture will be on Collecting Private Press Books. I am rather nervous but extremely excited to visiting the famous Thomas Fisher Library at long last.

ANTE'S INFERNO by Griselda Heppel - WINNER OF THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD 2013
Griselda Heppel has won this year's People's Choice Award with her fantastic debut novel for older children 'Ante's Inferno'. It is a gripping variation on Dante's work for 9 to adult which captures the imagination of all who read it. Not only did it win the People's Choice Children's Award but it also won the Silver award in the Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards. I thoroughly recommend it for you and your children and will facilitate orders for anyone who is interested. Even better, the book is beautifully designed by Pete Lawrence using a wood engraving by Hilary Paynter for the wrappers. The hardback is priced at 9.99, so get the first edition while you can - this is your moment to get ahead of the game as we all failed to do with Harry Potter...
