Earlier in the day, Wendy Cooling hosted a panel discussion on progressive children’s literature with two of the shortlisted Little Rebels authors, Jeanne Willis and Sarah Garland:

A lively and upbeat debate!

It’s been a fantastic process running this new children’s book award. Do remember you can buy any of the shortlisted titles from Letterbox Library. This award was run voluntarily and unfunded by Letterbox Library on behalf of the Alliance of Radical Booksellers. To keep this award and the adult Bread & Roses Award alive, we do ask you to buy from members of the Alliance of Radical Booksellers wherever possible.

Meantime…watch this space for future awards:
