The WeRead Book Award was set up in 2008, initially with the generous sponsorship of the Brookwood Partnership and University College School in London, to encourage young people to discover the magic of reading. WeRead invites young readers to write reviews of a selection of books and to nominate their favourite author. Then, we invite the authors to meet the readers at a 'Meet-the-Author' day, at which the winning authors and reviewers are awarded prizes. Now in our ninth year, WeRead's 'Meet-the-Author' day is recognised as an exciting event in the calendar of several schools, and already has a devoted following. This year's Award Ceremony and 'Meet-the-Author' day will take place in June 2017 (the venue has yet to be decided).
