Islington Carnegie Shadowing Event
This week the library reading group took part in the Carnegie Shadowing event at AMSI School, compered by author Faye Bird who was talking about her new book My Secret Lies With You. The group had all read the shortlisted books and put on a (very) short play based on their chosen favourite book, The Land of Neverendings by Kate Saunders. Other schools contributed poems and other interpretations of their favourite books. The Islington winner was Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds and the winner of the actual prize was Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo. Particular praise must be made of Jade and Jasmine Reed who made some awesome props including a life size nun and penguin! Congratulations also to Annachiara, Nishath Nawa and Tensae who put on a great performance.
