Biblio-buzz: The Alexandra Palace Children's Book Awards

Years 5 – 7

Alexandra Palace is buzzing about books!

Every year we team up with Haringey Library Services to invite young people aged 9 – 12 to take part in Biblio-Buzz: Alexandra Palace Children’s Book Awards – the award that enthuses children across the borough of Haringey to read and vote for their favourite book!

Every year, young people from Haringey will be able to vote for their favourite book from a shortlist of six titles. As part of a reading challenge, Haringey libraries run workshops and reading circles as well as the opportunity to meet with the shortlisted authors. The celebrations culminate with an award ceremony in Alexandra Palace Theatre, which has recently reopened to the public after being closed for 80 years.

This year the prize was awarded to:

Will You Catch Me? – Jane Elson
Child I – Steve Tasane

The shortlist is chosen by a dedicated team of school librarians who founded the award.

This year’s shortlisted novels also included:

Tin – Padraige Kenny
Kat Wolfe Investigates – Lauren St John
The Lost Magician – Piers Torday
Kick – Mitch Johnson
