Neil Gaiman Awarded Carnegie Medal in Historic Win

graveyard23.pngYesterday novelist Neil Gaiman won the UK’s CILIP Carnegie Medal, capping off an excellent awards season for the book–it also won the prestigious Newbery Medal in January.

Here’s more from the release: “Gaiman the first author to complete the ‘double’ being awarded both these internationally recognised prizes for children’s fiction for the same book ensuring his place in literary history … The Graveyard Book also narrowly missed a ‘triple’ in 2010. Illustrated with evocative line drawings by Chris Riddell, it was also shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal for outstanding illustration.”
