The shortlist for the Cheshire Schools' Book Award 2020 was announced on Tuesday 22 October 2019 at Winsford Academy. Manchester-based author Martin Griffin hosted the launch event, entertaining the audience with stories about his own writing career.
Nominated by secondary schools students across Cheshire, Warrington and Halton, this year's shortlist is particularly interesting. From the Roman Empire in Nicholas Bowling's In The Shadow of Heroes to the treacherous seas of Bex Hogan's Viper, there is sure to be a book to capture the imagination of every reader.
Students will have until the end of May 2020 to read through the shortlist and cast their votes.
