Jackie Kay, our brilliant and hilarious keynote speaker at the Manchester Writing Together conference.

Booktrust's last board meeting was chaired by Alison Morrison of Walker Books deputising for Kim Reynolds, in attendance were Nigel Williams, Treasurer, Sue Horner of the QCA, Nick McDowell of Arts Council England, London plus Booktrust staff Catherine Large, Eamonn Flynn and James Smith.
We have an excellent board - interesting people with useful ideas, loads of experience and a recognition of the complexity of their role in relation to the staff.
