Obama, Summerscale and the British Book Awards

I just had a thought - Obama is up for a British Book Award this evening - and by a curious coincidence happened to be in the country yesterday (helping Gordon Brown 'save the world' - ahem). Now, I appreciate he's now in Strasbourg, but - Michelle might be staying behind to pick up one on his behalf? Just a thought... Obviously a big 'good luck' to Kate Summerscale, who we are hoping will win one of the two (possibly three) awards that she's up for, as we are welcoming her to Abingdon for a Mostly Booklovers event the next day... We've also got Mousehunter Alex Milway giving a drawing masterclass earlier in the day - so it's another busy Saturday for us here in Abingdon...
