Wadebridge School have been awarded an Annual Fund grant for their Kernow Youth Book Award (KYBA).
KYBA is a Cornish reading initiative running from September to March with six shortlisted titles selected by the young people of Cornwall. The aim is to encourage all ages and abilities to enjoy books they might not normally choose and be able to discuss and vote for their favourite. Shortlisted authors attend to inspire the audience with humour, magic (we have had authors who are also members of the Magic Circle) and an insight into the craft of writing. The whole event is a celebration of reading.
The 2020 award takes place at the Eden Project on Wednesday 29th April.
