As we get closer to the announcement of the winner of the 2021 Booker Prize on 3 November, we're delighted to offer libraries, colleges and secondary schools an exclusive opportunity to host a Booker Prize shortlist event.
As part of the Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 celebrations, join the 2021 Booker Prize shortlisted authors, alongside former Booker Prize judge and author, Lemn Sissay, for an evening of readings and conversation about their shortlisted books. This event will be held on Friday 29 October, 7-8.30pm.
Libraries, colleges and secondary schools will be able to stream this event either live on 29 October, or using a recording in the following days before the winner announcement on 3 October. Participating organisations will receive additional content to use in their event, including assets to promote the event online.
This is an exciting, new and exclusive opportunity for you to bring the Booker Prize shortlist directly to your library users or students.
