Acclaimed author donates prize money to Blue Ventures
“Katherine Rundell has just become the youngest ever winner of the prestigious literary prize – for a biography of ‘poet of desire’ John Donne. Why is she giving the £50,000 away? Because, she says, no man is an island…” – Lisa Allardice, The Guardian
The Guardian wrote an article about author Katherine Rundell and her generous donation to Blue Ventures. Rundell is the youngest ever winner of the Baillie Gifford prize, a prestigious literary award, for a biography of poet John Donne called ‘Super-Infinite’. She is giving half of the Baillie Gifford prize money to Blue Ventures, because, she says, quoting John Donne: “No man is an island.”
We are grateful for her generosity and wish her many congratulations for winning such an important award.
