Dara McAnulty shortlisted for the Books Are My Bag Reader’s Award

Dara McAnulty’s Diary of a Young Naturalist has been shortlisted for the Books Are My Bag Reader’s Award!

This is an especially welcome shortlisting, having been chosen by independent booksellers who have been so important in spreading the word about this extraordinary book, and who, in these challenging times, went above and beyond to support Dara. As Dara himself says:

“It is truly wonderful to be shortlisted for an award curated by booksellers, for they are the superheroes of authors. They are the bridge that connects us with our readers, and it is their enthusiasm and dedication that means books find the right home, the right imagination. I’m so grateful for this nomination. It means the world.”

You can vote on this year’s shortlist, and when you do so you get the chance to win £100 of book tokens. Vote here!

What a start it has been to Dara’s journey as a writer.
