What is The Best of the Best?

9 Jul 2018

The Welsh Books Council are in search of just that. For the best in Welsh language children and young adult literature throughout the years so that it can be shared with today's audience.

In response to some of the recommendations given in the Survey of  Welsh Books for Children and Young People  by Dr Siwan Rosser (Cardiff University), the Welsh Books Council continues with the premiere campaign during 'Gŵyl Arall' in Caernarfon this year.

As part of the celebrations, the Books Council, in partnership with 'Gŵyl Arall' have organized an entertaining discussion with Dr Siwan Rosser, Iwan Huws, Geraint Lovgreen and Mirian Elin Jones, where they will discuss reading for pleasure in the context of Children and Young Adult literature. The panel will discuss their favourite books in this category, and ask what makes a book appealing, and how to choose which books to be considered among the best of the best.

At this year's Urdd Eisteddfod, everyone had the opportunity to contribute to the campaign by posing their suggestions to a special box on the Siop Inc stand. The intention is to continue this informal consultation on the Books Council stand during the Royal Welsh Show at Llanelwedd, and the National Eisteddfod in Cardiff. Also, titles can be offered to be included when tagging #gorauorgoreuon on Twitter.
