Book Links Award for 2021 Children’s Historical Fiction Longlist announced!
The waiting is over, the longlist is out. Out of sixty entries eighteen titles have been selected as outstanding works of historical fiction for children.
Historical fiction is an important way for young readers to engage with our history. It’s also a genre that kids love but it’s often overlooked. So I was thrilled to learn of Booklinks new biennial prize to reward authors writing in this rich and varied area. Fiona Stager, Where The Wild Things Are Book Shop
‘This is an impressive list from a wide variety of talented creators, each title remarkable in its own special way. Read, enjoy, share,’ Margaret McKay-Lowndes, judge.

The shortlist will be announced on Wednesday 19 May at the Book Links Narelle Oliver Lecture in Children’s Literature.
Congratulations to all the creators.
