NEW ZEALAND BOOK AWARDS FOR CHILDREN & YOUNG ADULTS

BOOKS ALIVE ONLINE EVENTS AND VIRTUAL STORYTIMES

Books Alive and virtual storytimes offer an innovative approach to promoting the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults in 2020 as a result of the challenges caused by the pandemic and aims to build on the experiences of public and school libraries offering virtual storytimes during COVID-19 lockdown.

The Books Alive online events and virtual storytimes will promote the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults finalist books, authors and illustrators and publishers to new audiences and the wider community.

School and public libraries have the opportunity to offer Books Alive finalist author/illustrator events online, as an alternative to face-to-face author events, formerly hosted in some public libraries. School and public libraries also have the opportunity to offer multiple virtual storytimes.
