Bookcast, the BBA Newsletter

We are thrilled to share Bookcast, our new Bucks Book Award newsletter! 

The first issue contains a report on the 2020 Awards ceremony written by students from Pipers Corner School giving their view on the wonderful performance by award-winning poet, Karl Nova.

We are also really excited to share the first instalment of an author Q&A with the C.G. Drews who is the author of the brilliant ‘Boy who steals houses’. The Q&A will conclude in the next issue of Bookcast, due in May 2020.

There are also lots of other news and information inside including a Poetry Competition to win a signed copy of Karl Nova’s Rhythm and Poetry, new books list, a wordsearch and much more!
