Thank you from the 2019 Chair of Judges

I step down as 2019 Chair of the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals judging panel with a mixture of pride and reluctance. This year, and indeed the previous year shadowing Jake Hope, the 2018 Chair of judges, has been a whirlwind of activity. I’ve read, reviewed, blogged and met authors, illustrators, publishers and book lovers of all ages. I’ve been fortunate enough to receive invitations to book launches and events and to arrive home from work virtually each day to parcels of every shape and size. These contained books which have inspired and entertained me, made me think and laugh and which I’ve been able to share with friends, family, colleagues…and my fellow judges. It’s been a joy and an honour to be part of the medals’ heritage and to have represented Yorkshire and the Humber as a regional judge from 2011-2014. My incredible journey is almost over; by the time my final blog goes live on the shadowing website, the 2019 winners of the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals will have been revealed and we’ll all have had a chance to shout about the presentation of the inaugural Shadowers’ Choice Awards.
