Young Quills 2020

Help the Historical Association create the Young Quills Award shortlist

The Young Quills Awards for Historical Fiction are annual awards that recognize the best in historical fiction for young people.

Last year’s winners were these:

This year, the reviews of books by children and young people will help to create a shortlist that is then sent to the final judges. In other words, you will be helping to choose the winners just by writing what you think about a book that is on the reading list.

This year the Historical Association really wants to encourage young people to get reading during lockdown and this is one of the ways they are going to do it.

Attached below is a list of the books that have been entered this year and the suggested age range that they are for. Now any child or young person that has read one of the books can send in a review using the guidance, which is also attached below. Children must provide their full name, school and age. All reviews must reach the HA at  by 31 July 2020.
