Rosie Talbot wins GOLD!

We are delighted to announce that the wonderful Rosie Talbot is your Gold Award Winner.

Sixteen souls was a clear winner but Finn Longman’s The Butterfly Assassin and Alex Bell’s The Lighthouse were a super close Silver and Bronze.

Huge thanks to all our finalist authors for joining us at the award night, we hope you enjoyed the evening.

A BIG thank you to all of the staff and students who came along too. It was so FANTASTIC to see you face-to-face again after so long.

A final thanks to the Book Nook, Hove for your on-going support over the past 12 years. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I just wanted to say how fantastic the ABA was this year. Our pupils had such a good time! It was so well organised, and the authors gave such good talks (hearing their origin stories was so much better than when they just read from their books!)- they were all articulate, funny and inspirational speakers.

We are looking forward to next year already!
