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.
