Queen's Birthday Honours List

This year's list has been published. Reading through it, I find:

Officers of the Order of the British Empire
Ms Malorie BLACKMAN - For services to Children's Literature.

Members of the Order of the British Empire
Roderick James HUNT - For services to Education, particularly Children's Literacy.

I haven't read any of Blackman's books, but I'm going to see what our library has. Hunt, presumably, is the chap who writes books for the Oxford Reading Tree learn-to-read programme.

And I have to admit to being intrigued by the MBE awarded to Kate Sandra, Mrs Fyfe, for "services to the Kiltmaking Industry in Scotland."
