CBCA Clayton’s Night 2016 – Older Readers
Clayton’s Night is held annually in the month before the official CBCA shortlist is announced.
Guest judges are asked to look at the entries from each year and pick a personal ‘best of’. They don’t have any correspondence with the official judges, and their selections are their own. In addition, each of the guest judges only presents books in one of the five national categories: the three age-based categories – Older Readers, Younger Readers and Early Childhood – and the two general categories – Picture Book and Eve Pownall.
