Alert! SA Partridge won the R30 000 MER Youth Prize – for young adult fiction – at the 2008 M-Net/Via Afrika literary awards tonight. She’s pictured here with fellow winner-on-the-night Breyten Breytenbach (and see the pic of her receiving her award, below).
The award is for her first novel, The Goblet Club, and she beat out fellow “Ek is ‘n skrywer” winners Derek Muller and Bridgette Labuschagne to claim it. From all of us at BOOK SA, allow me to extend warmest congratulations to Sally on her achievement!
