More of Me nominated for Carnegie Medal

By Kathryn Evans

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that I am a huge fan of the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway medals. This is because the nominees and winners are chosen by librarians. Only librarians.  And I have haunted libraries all my life.

I’ve blogged about it in the past, this is my post from 2015. I even shadowed the shortlist last year – something I highly recommend – great books and you learn SO MUCH and get to hang out and chat about some of the best books in the country.

It all starts with a list of nominations. It’s usually a very long list and this year is no exception – it is a very long list. But there is one tiny difference this year.

I am on it.

It means so much  I feel like I’ve won already.  I will always be a Carnegie nominated author.

I think I might go and have another little cry.

Congratulations to all the nominees for both the Greenaway and the Carnegie. I am beyond honoured to be on the list with you.
