Prof Sarah Churchwell (AMA) has been announced as the joint winner of the 2015 Eccles British Library Writer in Residence Award

The award was set up to promote awareness of the British Library collections relating to the USA and Canada and to help facilitate the use of these collections. 
Each of the winners is awarded £20,000 and will use the collections to research their upcoming publications during their residency which starts in January 2015. 
Churchwell is currently writing a work of non-fiction, entitled Mastery, in which different biographical perspectives on Henry James in 1897, as he was composing The Turn of the Screw, twist and transform different takes on his most popular novel.
