Stan Lee Excelsior Book Award launched!

Stan LeeA new book award has been launched by Sheffield Librarian Paul Register, with the blessing of the great comic book writer Stan Lee.  This award is for the best graphic novels, and Paul says that  ‘I have no doubt that these books will lead to discussions, debates and enjoyment across Sheffield’s schools – and across gender, race, reading ability and social class.’  If you would like to read more about the award, including how to enter, and which books are shortlisted, please go to this page.  This is another excellent example of how school librarians are constantly trying to instil excitement into  reading for young people, using many different media.  I hope that this inaugural award will be an amazing success!
