Book Links Award for Children’s Historical Fiction 2023: Entries open
Yes, it’s that time again. The judges have been appointed, the timelines are set and we are looking for the best historical novel published in 2022 to win the 2023 Book Links Award for Children’s Historical Fiction.
Historical fiction brings the past to life and highlights shared values. As Wendy Orr, our current winner says: ‘we can often understand ourselves better when we put ourselves into a very different life. When everything else in life is different, we are left with the core values in ourselves as humans – which helps us to understand that other people living now are also just as human as we are, no matter how different their beliefs, experiences or appearance.’
A prize of $1000 will be awarded to a book that is not only an outstanding work of fiction but excels at increasing the awareness and developing the understanding of history in children.
Entries for the 2023 Book Links Award for Children’s Historical Fiction are now open. The deadline to enter is 28 February 2023.
