The CBCA Book of the Year Awards and CBCA Book Week 2020 will be postponed until term 4 at a date to be decided.
This will apply in 2020 only, recognising the exceptional circumstances of the pandemic. The CBCA National Board have issued a statement saying the two events go hand-in-hand and that:
- CBCA Book Week relies for its success on students and families gathering together in classrooms, libraries and other community spaces;
- Creators, some of whom rely for much of their income on speaking, can be supported in their speaking tours during CBCA Book Week;
More details to come.
