Aidan Chambers has just been elected to the list of Fellows of the Royal Society of Literature. This is a huge honour as it is recognition and honour from Aidan's peers. The Society was founded in 1820 by George IV 'to excite literary talent and reward literary merit' and is currently housed in Somerset House on the Strand. The Society is independent of government and of any other institution such as the universities. Check our holdings of Aidan's work here.
