Kevin Crossley-Holland to become SLA President in 2012
In the same week as the publication of his new and selected poems The Mountains of Norfolk, and the award of an honourary doctorate from Anglia Ruskin University, The School Library Association has announced that Kevin Crossley-Holland will become its President in 2012.
Ginette Doyle, Chair of the SLA said, 'On behalf of the Board and the SLA I would like to welcome Kevin; we all look forward to working with him on the common aim of highlighting the importance of school libraries and the valuable work they do in raising literacy and encouraging reading and independent learning.'
Kevin replied, 'you do me a great honour in inviting me to become President of the School Library Association in succession to Miranda McKearney, and I have much pleasure in accepting. I will do my best to proclaim your vision and support your absolutely crucial work.'
Enitharmon Press would like to congratulate Kevin Crossley-Holland for this latest honour, and wish him all the best in this vital role, at this vital time for libraries and education.
