Over 1,000 pupils came together at the Awards Ceremony at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury or via live satellite feed on Friday 22nd April 2016 to celebrate the end of a remarkable reading for pleasure project. The theatre was packed with children, teachers, and authors, desperate to find out which title had won the Shrewsbury Bookfest Book Award 2016.
Jane Elson was eventually revealed as WINNER of Book Award 2016. Feeling almost overcome with emotion, Jane accepted her award saying, "this is for all the Sashas and Willems out there in the world", celebrating the uniqueness of every individual child and the potential everyone holds within them.
