If you work with young people in the library and literature sphere, we need your help. We are looking for young adult fiction nominations for the 2023 West Australian Young Reader’s Book Award. Students can nominate online – all you have to do is promote the Award with them and point them in the right direction.
We’d love to hear what you think of the Middle Grade Shortlist that we are trialing this year. If you have any other feedback we’d love to hear that too. You can email us at email@example.com.
