Launch of Alcester Schools’ Book Award – 2015

This year’s annual book award, for our local schools, is now underway with students from Alcester Grammar, Alcester Academy and St Benedict’s Roman Catholic School uniting for the joy of reading and community friendship between the three schools. The first event will see students being introduced to the shortlist titles and the defined criteria by which they can judge the books to help decide which they will put through as their winner and the competition and author event, which they always hold. Alcester Grammar are delighted to be hosting an author visit this year and will be visited by an exciting, new author.  Details to follow shortly
