No golden envelope hiccups here at Dulwich College as the Master, Dr Joe Spence, announced Stewart Foster as winner of the Trinity Schools Book Award for 2017.
The event was live tweeted with #tsba2017 if you want to check out the Twitter photos and you can read the TSBA blog write up here
It was a great evening with lots of enthusiasm for reading and writing. Both authors, Stewart Foster and Diana Hendry (The Seeing) gave thoughtful and thought-provoking answers to the questions that the students from participating schools had submitted for the Q&A session. In particular we enjoyed hearing about the books which had captured their young imaginations and how hearing their characters speak helps them move the story along.
Many thanks to all the sponsors for the goody bags, the staff and pupils who helped out on the day, the authors and their teams and most of all to all the students who read the stories, voted and came along to the ceremony.
