PRESS RELEASE – 29-07-2020

Winners announced for 2020 Holyer an Gof Awards

Gorsedh Kernow is pleased to announce the winners of the annual Holyer an Gof Publishers’ competition.  Sadly we’ve not been able to hold our usual gala awards event at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro this year because of Covid-19 restrictions. Established and organised by Gorsedh Kernow to encourage publishing in Cornwall, this year’s winners were once again chosen from the best, recently published books about Cornwall, set in Cornwall or in Kernewek (the Cornish language). “We were delighted that a major effort by our hard-working reader-reviewers meant that we were able to complete the ‘Holyer Year’ almost as usual, despite the problems caused by the Covid-19 epidemic,” said Holyer an Gof co-organiser Professor Gareth Parry, Mab Meliner Gwlan.The winner of the 2019 Gorsedh Kernow Holyer an Gof Publisher’s Awards Cornish Adult Fiction:

HIDDEN DEPTHS – Tregunna part 4 – Two decades ago, a girl scrambled out of a car and ran into the woods. When Cornish DI Andy Tregunna finds the body of a local politician, it seems to be a straightforward case of suicide. Then a brutal killing takes place on the moor. Coincidence, or are the two cases related? As Tregunna and Penrose delve deeper into the lives of the suspects, they come closer to a killer who will do anything to keep the secrets hidden in the depths.
