Great Reads Awards Ceremony

Great Reads Awards Ceremony

A group of 1st Year students, accompanied by Ms Keating and Ms Morrissey, attended the inaugural awards ceremony for the 'Great Reads Awards' which was held in The King's Hospital School this morning (Friday 17th Feb).  We were treated to a highly entertaining ceremony hosted by the wonderful Paul Howard.  Many of the shortlisted writers were at the event and everyone got to meet and talk to them.  The formalities were followed by refreshments and meeting the writers.  It was a wonderful occasion enjoyed by all.

The Senior award was won by Lisa Williamson for her incredible book 'The Art of Being Normal', while the Junior award was won by Moira Fowley-Doyle for her imaginative and intriguing 'The Accident Season'.  Dave Rudden won a special prize for 'the most read book' for his 'Knights of the Borrowed Dark'.
