RED Book Award 14


Falkirk Council’s RED (Read Enjoy Debate)  Book Award is now in its 14th year and the excellent shortlist of books is:

The Quiet at the End of the World by Lauren James

Orphan Monster Spy by Matt Killeen

The Closest Thing to Flying by Gill Lewis

Outwalkers by Fiona Shaw 

The shortlisted authors are invited to Falkirk to lead workshop sessions in the secondary schools and to attend the Book Award ceremony in Falkirk Town Hall. A major highlight of the Book Award process is the award ceremony in May, where pupils from each of the secondary schools in Falkirk Council screen their creative digital interpretations of the shortlisted books, meet the authors and celebrate books and reading.

Unfortunately due to Covid 19 the book award ceremony has been cancelled for this year. It is so disappointing that this decision has had to be taken, feedback from previous participants tell us that the RED Book award is one of the highlights of the school year.
