As all of those who took part can testify, the Library and Information Service did a wonderful job of hosting the 9 short listed authors during their visit to Aberdeen in November. The Beach Ballroom was full to bursting with lots of enthusiastic youngsters ranging from 5 to 16. They posed interesting questions to the authors and thoroughly enjoyed hearing what motivated them to become writers. Of course, we now want as many children as possible to vote and to encourage this, each author has designed a certificate to be awarded to the schools taking part. It would be a lovely thank you for the Library Service staff if we could have a record breaking number of votes cast before the closing date of 5th February. Let’s see what we can manage before then!
