BW Eager Readers!
We are a group of students who love reading and we are all looking forward to the BIG EVENT on Friday 16th June!
We have been meeting every week for the past 3 months and have been trying to read as many of the shortlisted books as possible.
On Friday 2nd June our reading group got the chance to have a Skype interview with Ruta Sepetys! Ruta was calling all the way from Nashville, Tennassee and it was amazing being able to see her and ask her lots of questions about her Carnegie shortlisted book 'Salt to the Sea' Ruta also told us about the new book she is working on at the moment which is going to be about the lost children of Francoism - a true story about the theft and trafficking of thousands of babies by nuns, priests and doctors, which started under Spanish dictator General Francisco Franco and continued up to the 1990s.
On our group page on the Carnegie shadowing website you can view the book reviews that we have written and find out more about the shadowing scheme.
We have been reading the shortlisted titles for the last three months and we will be joined by another 45 students from two other Corby secondary and two primary schools who will be attending the BIG Event being held in the Library on Friday 16th June.
