Ian Rankin Wins Theakston Old Peculier Outstanding Contribution to Crime Fiction Award 2021
A special presentation was made to Ian Rankin OBE at the Harrogate Festival International, who was named the winner of the Theakston Old Peculier Outstanding Contribution to Crime Fiction Award for 2021.
Ian Rankin said, "It’s such a privilege and an honour to receive this award, and especially to be in Harrogate to receive it in person. I’ve been a published writer for over thirty years but this past year has been uniquely challenging – for writers, readers and booksellers. It’s heartening to see the Theakston Festival rise like a phoenix. Books continue to provide us with that wonderful mix of food for thought and escapism. I couldn’t be prouder to be a crime writer."
