Simon Brooks

Dr. Simon Brooks has been appointed Chair of the 2011 Welsh Book of the Year Competition Judging Panel. The annual prize, which is worth £10,000, is awarded to the best Welsh-language book published in 2010. The appointment means that Dr Brooks, who is a Lecturer in the School of Welsh, will read all Welsh-language books published this year - a task he is looking forward to "greatly".

Professor Gerwyn Wiliams and Kate Crockett will co-judge the competition.
