Roehampton Readers: Carnegie Reading Group Begins Its Third Year!

From Dr Lisa Sainsbury: For the last two years we have run a very successful Carnegie Reading Group for NCRCL MA and PhD students, past and present. We hope to organise this again this year and would like to invite PhD, Masters and undergraduate students working within NCRCL (and any other NCRCL interested parties) to participate.

The idea is to widen our awareness of the latest high quality books published for children and young people (that have been judged ‘outstanding’ by the Carnegie/Greenaway shortlist selectors) and to enjoy reading and discussing these texts.  Members of past groups ‘adopted’ one title of their choice from the shortlists, and have published fascinating reviews on the NCRCL blog, and on the Carnegie website, as well as engaging in most rewarding and enjoyable discussions.

Have a look at the Carnegie website for details of the longlist. The final shortlist will appear this evening 15th March, 7.30pm.

And check the shadowing part of the site to find our group – we are the Roehampton Readers (not Roehampton Library).

If you are interested in taking part, please contact Kay Waddilove ( who will be facilitating the group, and she will contact you with more information. The group usually operates as a twilight session; please let Kay know which evenings you could be available.

You can also check out notices and reviews from the past Roehampton Readers Carnegie group on the blog over the past two years. We hope to see you there this year for tea, biscuits and discussion!
