2021 Bangkok Book Awards
Students have been excitedly reading the nominees for the 2021 Bangkok Book Awards. In the MLC, students have been poring over the Picture Book, Young Reader and Junior Book nominees to find which one is their favorite. There has been quite a bit of buzz about titles like “Wedgie and Gizmo” and “The Boy at the Back of the Class”. Even with several copies, many of the books are hard to come by in the MLC!
Librarians from various international schools in Thailand come together to shortlist a variety of books in the different categories. These choices have different guidelines including year of publication, global diversity, genre assortment and more. Please visit the Bangkok Book Awards website for more information about the selection of titles.
From next year on, the awards will be renamed as the Siam Book Awards as it is more considerate of the regions where participating schools, librarians and students are located.
Students will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite titles in March. We cannot wait to see who the winners will be and how the students in Thailand will choose!
Visit the BBA website to learn more about the selection of books. You can also view previous winners, this year’s selections and have the opportunity to vote.
