    We had a wonderful time celebrating the four fantastic shortlisted books and authors at our Award Ceremony in July 2019 at the Bridge House Theatre, Warwick.

    The winner, chosen by pupils across Warwickshire, was Sylvia Bishop for her book 'The Secret of the Night Train.' Thank you to all the pupils who took part and to the wonderful authors who attended the ceremony. We loved hearing what has inspired you to read and write your books!
