Authors Amaze Hayesbrook Book Club at SESTBA Awards Evening

Students from Hayesbrook were lucky enough to attend the South East Schools Themed Book Awards on 27 March.

As members of Hayesbrook’s Book Club, Tyler, Pharrell, Sean, Xavier, Danny and Fintan have been reading books from the two shortlists since Autumn. On the night they got to find out which two books had won the coveted awards and watch entertaining and interesting talks from nominated authors Juno Dawson and Patrice Lawrence. All of the students also received generous vouchers to purchase books to get signed by Juno and Patrice.

After the votes from over 15 local schools had been counted, the two winners were 'The Art of Being Normal' by Lisa Williamson and 'The Wolf Wilder' by Katherine Rundell. All of the students, librarians, and teachers in attendance had a fantastic time and cannot wait until the next awards ceremony next March!
