Alexandra Palace is joining forces with local libraries, schools and bookshops to inspire a new generation of young bookworms, Biblio-Buzz 2024 has launched the Alexandra Palace Children’s Book Award.
Biblio-Buzz is aimed at young people in north London aged nine to 12 years old, and challenges them to read the novels of six shortlisted authors, whilst taking on a series of literary challenges, including activities and roadshows in local schools and libraries.
Participants will then vote for their favourite book before attending an awards ceremony at the Alexandra Palace Theatre, plus a ceremony for the Haringey Library Service Award, where they will meet the authors, get their books signed and take part in workshops. Over 1,500 young people took part in this year’s campaign.
Biblio-Buzz 2024, runs from January until March next year, but with the shortlist announced, those taking part are encouraged to get reading!
The 2024 shortlist is selected by a team of local school librarians, founders of the awards.
