This week we’ve been telling class groups coming into the Wodehouse Library about the shortlists for the Trinity Schools Book Award 2016 on the theme of Voyages and Journeys:
That’s plenty of reading ahead of next March’s award ceremony although both lists contain some old favourites so we’re looking forward to reminding ourselves of what we most enjoyed about some of these books.
Last year’s winners were Michael Morpurgo for Private Peaceful and Markus Zusak for The Book Thief and alongside the winning authors students were awarded prizes for their creative responses to the books they had read and reviewed. You can read more about the 2015 ceremony here and see photos of the event here.
All the 2016 shortlisted titles are now available in the Wodehouse Library (except for The Road to Little Dibbling by Bill Bryson which will be published later this year).
