Huge congratulations to Jenny Brown from everyone at XpoNorth Digital for being awarded an OBE in the King’s Birthday Honours List.

Brown is founder of literary agency Jenny Brown Associates, and was was previously head of literature at the Scottish Arts Council, presenter of book programmes for Scottish Television, and founder director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

Brown commented: "I’m absolutely delighted to have been recognised in this way. I feel fortunate indeed to have contributed in a range of roles connecting writers and readers at a vibrant period in the development of Scotland’s literature culture. . . I’m struck by what vitality there is here in Scotland, in our bookshops, festivals (now numbering 50), publishers and literature organisations, and especially among the remarkable writing community. I can look back over 40 years and, thanks to the efforts of so many people, see a transformed literary landscape and, despite all the challenges, feel encouraged and inspired by what lies ahead."
