The British Book Awards 2018
We are delighted that Emma Draude and Rosi Crawley (Walker Books) were awarded Publicity Campaign of the Year at the British Book Awards 2018 last night for their campaign for The Hate U Give.
“This is a great success story in a market where it’s not easy to make an impact,” judges said. “It was a phenomenal campaign which achieved a huge amount of coverage and provided an outstanding base for the marketing and sales teams. They nailed everything they set out to do, and the community engagement made it extra special.”
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas was a joint winner of Children’s Book of the Year, alongside The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris. It was described by the judges as “a game changer for both YA fiction and BAME publishing”.
We are also incredibly proud of Philip Pullman for winning Author of the Year, particularly as we had the pleasure of working with him and David Fickling Books on Daemon Voices last year.
