'Twas the night before the announcement of the Shortlist, and five brave presenters explored the Notables, evaluated, argued and were brave enough to present their predictions and dilemmas in front of other children's literature aficionados.
Fueled by refreshments, the audience also had the chance to browse and buy selected books from the Notables at a pop-up book shop by our sponsor St Georges Books. Another highlight was the announcement and unveiling of the winners in our Book Week "Find Your Treasure" poster competition.
How did the presenters go? Not as well as they hoped, (about 50%), but more aware of the difficulties the judges face, and still prepared to defend their selections! Members can view the presentations on The Members Only page of the website.
