Tower Hamlets Book Award 2020

About the Book Award

The annual Tower Hamlets Book Award is just one of the exciting events made possible through subscriptions to the Tower Hamlets Schools Library Services.

The Book Award is for pupils aged 10 to 13. The aim is to encourage children to read, to bring children together to enable debate and discussion about books and to encourage children to share the pleasure of reading.

The Shortlist

We’ve got an awesome shortlist this year, and all subscribing schools will get a free set of these books!

  • Fire Girl, Forest Boy by Chloe Daykin
  • High Rise Mystery by Sharna Jackson
  • Pie in the Sky by Remi Lai
  • Anisha, Accidental Detective by Serena Patel
  • Anna at War by Helen Peters
  • Empire’s End by Leila Rasheed

Additional sets of the 6 books will also be on sale from us at a discounted price of £35. Please email to order.

The Grand Finale

The finale has been scheduled for late November, although it may be moved to a later date depending on our being able to hold an event safely.

Numbers guests at the venue may be limited this year, although we intend to make the event available online with as much audience and author participation as possible!
