Day 3: Warwickshire Secondary Book Awards Digital Awards Ceremony!

Today, we are very pleased to share with you a video from Carnegie Medal Winning author, Tanya Landman (and her beautiful cat!) Set in America in the late 19th century, this work of fiction was inspired by the real-life story of Annie Oakley, a sharpshooter who was the highest paid performer in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. This book instantly draws you into the setting and plight of the main character, Maggie. She encounters cruelty and abuse in a society whereby a woman's role was largely confined to marriage and motherhood. Maggie's warmth and resilience shines through in this coming of age novel.
