Anticipation is mounting… #tsba2017

Posted on Updated on

We can’t believe it’s nearly time to announce the winners!

And it isn’t only the authors who can anticipate being prize winners on Tuesday evening as there are also prizes for the students who submit the Best Review and the Best Creative Response to a shortlisted book.

The fun will start in the Lower Hall with refreshments before we all head up to the Great Hall for the award ceremony, starting with those student winners (good luck to all have submitted entries!).

Before the announcement of the winning book there will be an authors’ panel session at which our special guests will answer questions. After the winner has been revealed and the applause has died down there’ll be a chance to meet the authors, pick up a goody bag* and take a look at all the creative responses which will be on display in the Lower Hall.

So, here as promised, are the remaining shortlisted books (again, no clues here for the winner):

There Will Be Lies, by Nick Lake

She Is Not Invisible, by Marcus Sedgwick

Many thanks to all the sponsors of the goody bags:
