hba shortlistThe Hampshire Book Award launches in schools this week!

The HBA is an annual award for the best paperback fiction title published in the previous year for the 11-14 age group, running from the spring into the summer term.

The aims of the award are to promote the enjoyment of reading; to foster a reading ethos within the school; to draw attention to the most rewarding and accessible fiction for the age group; and to challenge students to critically assess books and to make a reasoned argument in group discussions.

The final discussion and voting day will take place at six venues simultaneously on Wednesday 1 July, with the winner announced at the end of the morning.

If you have registered to take part, look out for the support materials being emailed out to you shortly.
