Portsmouth Book Award 2019
/ Categories: General
On Wednesday 12th June a group of our Year 8 students visited to attend the Celebration Event of the Portsmouth Book Award to find out who had won the award for 2019.
This brought an end to 5 months of reading for the students. Ele Fountain won the award with her novel Boy 87, which the students were pleased about as she was their preferred choice too.
During the event the students got the opportunity to meet Ele Fountain who gave a talk to the students about writing and her inspiration of writing Boy 87 during her time working in Ethiopia.
