The Catalyst Fiction Group presented the shortlist for this year’s Catalyst Awards at New Stevenson Public Library on March 5th, 2009, which also happens to be World Book Day.
The final four are:
The Nostradamus Prophecy by Theresa Breslin
The Hundred-towered City by Garry Kilworth
The Lost Art by Simon Morden
Accidental Friends by Helena Pielichaty
Pupils from secondaries across North Lanarkshire introduced each shortlisted book, and read a brief biography of each author and an extract from each book.
