Carnegie Greenaway 3

| No Comments

Have had this paranoid feeling all day wondering whether yesterday's message breached the CILIP Embargo I had to sign.



I don't think so. Yes, it's true that some Carnegie authors/publishers might be able to deduce from my comments that they have not been shortlisted, but there are other factors involved which make such conclusions unsound. I can think of at least two books where the obvious conclusion - based on my reviews and known views - would be wrong. So, in the end, I have an easy conscience, especially insofar as any speculation provoked by my remarks can only enhance interest in the shortlist announcement.
I had been advised that the Greenaway shortlisting would not take so long as the Carnegie. It took longer. It was more intense and the discussions were more emotionally charged. One or two of the librarians were visibly shell-shocked at the end of the process. My proverbial hat goes off to them. Tomorrow (Thursday) I have to write my piece for the TES. I sketched much of it out in a notebook while travelling back on the train with R. -- who I met at Victoria -- on a 4 day visit from Sheffield.
