Terry Pratchett's L.A. Times Book Prize speech -- with cat

April 28, 2009 |  4:24 pm

Many people at the L.A. Times Book Prizes on Friday night were dressed up, even nervous -- but Terry Pratchett, who won for his young adult novel "Nation," filmed his acceptance speech at home in England wearing casual pants and a black t-shirt. And he was accompanied by his cat, who stood on his desk -- although not on ceremony -- determined to be part of the goings-on.

So many in attendance were charmed by Terry Pratchett and his cat that we just had to put the video online.
