2022 sees the introduction of a brand new award for Children’s and Young Adult literature published over the last 24 months. It is so important that all children see themselves and their families reflected in the stories they read. The Polari prize showcases many talented authors and illustrators helping readers do just that. The Polari Children’s & YA Prize is awarded every 2 years and will next be awarded in 2024.
A beautifully illustrated celebration of love and acceptance that gently centres a queer love story in a picture book.
