Podcast: UKYA Blogger Awards and the YA Book Prize

This month, Kate talks about two firsts, the UKYA Blogger Awards, which are – we think – the first industry-sponsored awards for book bloggers, and the YA Book Prize, the first book prize exclusively for YA literature. Kate chats to Andy Robb, the founder of UKYABA, and Rob guests.
