Exciting news for our book lovers at WBCA! From 15th March, a group of our students will have the amazing opportunity of shadowing The Yoto Carnergies, where they will be reading and discussing some of the best books available right now.

We are thrilled that the longlist has arrived, which features fantastic book titles like “Where Our Worlds Collide” by author Danielle Jawando, who has also recently joined us at WBCA for World Book Week, which we are hosting as part of our World Book Day celebrations.

The Yoto Carnergies are the UK’s longest-running and best-loved children’s book awards and recognize outstanding reading experiences that are created through both writing and illustration alike.

Featuring stories from independent publishers, the 2023 longlist includes works that explore a variety of concepts from family life to important societal issues and reflecting on the past while looking to the future. Get ready to dive into some amazing literature at West Bromwich Collegiate Academy!
