In eager anticipation of the announcement of this year’s Carnegie Medal winner, we hosted an event on Friday 16th June in our Learning Resource Centre.
Welcoming pupils from local schools who had taken part in the Shadowing scheme we celebrated this prestigious book award by a morning of discussions, voting and quizzing.
The highlight of our morning was a talk from one of the Carnegie Judges, Tracey Frohawk who spoke about her experience as a judge and what it is like to meet some famous authors. The voting revealed that our Carnegie winner was the book ‘Salt to the Sea’ by Ruta Sepetys. We will have to see if the ‘real’ judges agree with us!
