Carnegie and Greenaway Medal Winner's Parties 2018
Junior and Senior Book Club members celebrated the announcement of this year's Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) Carnegie and Greenaway Medal Winners this week by holding their very own winner’s parties. These book awards are the oldest and most respected awards for children and are awarded annually to the writers of outstanding books for children and young people.
All the girls at the parties had taken part in the Junior and Senior Book Club 'award shadowing' challenge, by reading and voting for their own favourite book, from the Medal shortlists. With eight books on each award shortlist, all the girls who were involved are winning readers!
British writer Geraldine McCaughrean won the Carnegie Medal for the second time with her novel, ‘Where the World Ends’, and the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal was won by Canadian illustrator Sydney Smith, for his illustrations in Joanne Schwartz's picture book ‘Town Is by the Sea’.
