Carnegie Awards 2022: Shadowers' Celebration

On Thursday the 16 June, the Dulwich libraries celebrated the 2022 Yoto Carnegie Greenaway Awards.

Having read and discussed the eight shortlisted books for the past three months, Dulwich College hosted a celebration of this year's Carnegie Greenaway Awards, one of the highest profile annual children's book awards. 

Alongside three other attending schools - Alleyn's, JAGS, and Ibstock Place School - pupils participated in a quiz about the shortlisted books. 

Pupils cheered on their favourite titles throughout the event. The most popular with the Dulwich College Carnegie Shadowers was Punching the Air by Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam, but this year's official winner was the gorgeous October, October by Katya Balen, which can be borrowed from the Lower School Library.

Congratulations to the winners of the cover re-design competition - Juno from Alleyn's and Dulwich's own Joseph Robson, who created a digitally rendered alternate cover for Guard Your Heart by Sue Divin.
