Mr Monkey in Harrogate

"Hurrah for Mr Billingham!"

Mr Monkey visited the Cedar Court several times over the weekend to attend the Crime Writing Festival. The weekend actually began on Thursday night, when Mr Mark Billingham was presented with a small barrel to show that he'd won the first ever Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year award. This prize is notable because the winner is chosen by the general book reading public.

There are full details of the festival at the Harrogate Festival website, and about the beer that sponsored the prize at the Theakstons Brewery website.
