Wednesday 8th December 2021
David Veevers has won a 2021 Giles St Aubyn Prize for Non-fiction. He receives £2,500 to go towards his forthcoming history, A New History of the World at the Dawn of British Expansion (Ebury/PenguinRandomHouse)
In 2017, the RSL established these annual Awards for first-time writers of non-fiction through a generous bequest from author and RSL Fellow Giles St Aubyn. Giles St Aubyn, who died in 2015 aged 89, wrote 14 non-fiction books and taught history for nearly 40 years at Eton College. A nephew of Vita Sackville-West, he counted John Betjeman, John le Carré and The Queen Mother among his friends.
