Alexandra Palace Children's Book Awards

Haringey’s young bookworms are being encouraged to vote for their favourite book from a shortlist of six titles for the Biblio-Buzz: Alexandra Palace Children’s Book Award.

Alexandra Park and Palace Charitable Trust and Haringey Library Services have collaborated to deliver the award aimed at nine to 12 year olds across the borough, inspiring them to read and vote for their favourite book. The winning author of the children’s vote will receive an award at a ceremony to be held at the recently opened Alexandra Palace Theatre on Tuesday 2 April.

The Award Ceremony will be hosted by Michael Rosen, one of Britain’s best-loved writers and performance poets.
