If this Award is the one for which you get a scale model of one of the
stone lions that sit and guard a library (which one?  New York?  I don't
know, I'm sorry) then its organisers won DWJ's heart when she got her
second one by asking her which way the first one she had won was facing, so
that sho could have one facing the other way for the second and they could
sit at either end of her mantelpiece looking very swoosh.
