Announcement from The Royal Society of Literature

Monday 25 October 2010 7pm
The V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize
Chaired by Paula Johnson

Novelist and short-story writer Jane Gardam has been garlanded with prizes and awards. Her most recent collection of stories, The People on Privilege Hill, was described by critics as ‘dazzling’ and ‘pitch-perfect’.
Adam Mars-Jones, twice selected as one of Granta’s 20 ‘Best of Young British Novelists’, is the author of three collections of short stories and two novels, the latest of which, Pilcrow, has been praised in Metro as a ‘genuine, almost miraculous oddity’.
In an evening chaired by RSL prize administrator, Paula Johnson, Jane Gardam opens, followed by Adam Mars-Jones who reads his recent story ‘Irrational Fear of Tom Stoppard’.
Finally, after the announcement and presentation of the Royal Society of Literature's annual V.S. Pritchett Memorial Prize, the winning entry is read by its author.

This event will be held in the Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre, Courtauld Institute.

We are grateful to Prospect for sponsoring this event.
