Book Aid International’s Annual Literary Quiz was hosted by the incomparable writer and broadcaster Natalie Haynes.
Sixteen teams of bookish people battled it out, from The Guardian, Harper Collins, Carlton, Penguin Random House, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Clifford Chance, Inspired Selection, Tower Hamlets Libraries and numerous authors and illustrators. The evening raised a fantastic £1,619 for Book Aid International meaning we can send a further 809 books to our partners in Africa.
The winning team was ‘Quiztopher Robin’, fittingly a partnership of book editors, illustrators and authors. Congratulations guys!
The wonderful raffle prizes were generously donated by: London Review of Books; Penhaligons; Scholastic; Concrete; Pizza East; Eclipse; Little, Brown; New Internationalist.
