The Irish Book Awards Are Tonight

Heading out to the Irish Book Awards tonight in the Doubletree Hotel, Dublin. It’s the 10th Anniversary of the book awards. I’ve won 3 times in the past, for Children’s Book of the Year 2007 (The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas), Radio 1 Book of the Year 2007 (The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas) and Short Story of the Year 2014 (Rest Day).

This year I’m nominated in 2 categories, Children’s Book of the Year for The Boy at the Top of the Mountain and Short Story of the Year for Boy, 19 which features in my collection Beneath The Earth.
