About me

This blog does what it says on the tin: I am Mette and I am reading the Carnegie Medal Winners from the inception to the present and blogging about it along the way. I’m studying for a MA in Children’s Literature at Goldsmiths and started this project to keep me going through lockdown and the long summer holiday. The award was first given in 1936 and that where I start too.

I have also set up a Carnegie Winners bookclub with some fellow students, we select one book from each decade to read and discuss. The blog name was inspired by the blog Neilcooksgrigson.com which follows Neil as he cooks his way through Jane Grigson’s English Food.
