Two Megaphone masterclass leaders nominated for the Carnegie award!

The Carnegie Award is the Man Booker prize of children’s literature, and I’m super excited to hear that two Megaphone writers are on that list – Catherine Johnson for The Curious Tale of the Lady Caraboo, a wonderful novel about a real historical character who rose like a phoenix out of terrible circumstances and built her own life out of stories, and Alex Wheatle for his first YA novel, the funny and moving Liccle Bit, about a boy who’s caught in a situation that’s only getting worse… and how he tries to get out of it. I loved both these books. Huge congratulations to the authors!
