Roehampton Carnegie Readers Group – Want to Join?

Carnegie Greenway MedalsMessage from PhD student, Kay Waddilove:

At the MA induction day last term, I introduced the idea of hosting a Carnegie Reading Group for MA and PhD students (and any other NCRCL interested parties). The response was keen, so I set us up as a group on the Carnegie website and sat back to wait for shortlist day.

As you probably know, the shortlist is now out – and very exciting it looks too. The idea of the group is to enjoy reading and discussing recently published books for children and young people that have been judged ‘outstanding’ by the shortlist selectors – and NO essay to write at the end of it. Should be fun….

If you are interested in meeting to discuss the Carnegie titles, contact me on the email below and we’ll coordinate the meetings details from there. (Somewhere near good coffee is mandatory I think.)

Have a look at the Carnegie website for details of the shortlist, and at the shadowing part of the site to find our group – we are the Roehampton Readers (not Roehampton Library). To contact, send a message to

Hope to hear from you.

All the best,
