Holyer an Gof awards 2009

Francis Boutle Publishers win three awards

9 July 2009 was a good night for Francis Boutle Publishers who won the Holyer an Gof Trophy for the book Silvanus Trevail: Cornish Architect and Entrepreneur by Ronald Perry and Hazel Harradence.

Cornubia's Son: A Life of Mark Guy Pearse by Derek Williams won the Literary Award and Alan M Kent's play The Tin Violin was highly commended in the Adult Poetry and Drama section.

The awards are made annually by the Cornish Gorseth in memory of Cornish publisher and bard Len Truran and the event has become an important one for Cornish publishing.
