Absolutely delighted that Festival Patron Anna Whitelock has been awarded the PEN/Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography. In 'The Queen's Bed: An Intimate History of Elizabeth's Court', Anna Whitelock explores one of the most powerful women in history in a manner described by the judges as "perpetually engaging, fluid, and light in tone while profound in its depth." Congratulations Anna! http://www.pen.org/literature/2015-penjacqueline-bograd-weld-award-biography#sthash.0d1ynfHF.dpuf
