The Man Booker International Prize has just announced the 13 books that have been longlisted for the prestigious prize. The prize gives recognition to literary works that were translated to English and publish in the UK. It is different from its equivalent, the Man Booker Prize, where that award recognizes books originally written in English and published in the UK. The award comes with a cash prize of £50,000 ($71,000) that split equally between the author and the translator.
The winner will be announced on May 21 at a ceremony held at a dinner at the Roundhouse in London.
The BuzzFeed Book Club has partnered with the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment to launch this year’s One Book, One New York, a citywide campaign that gets the entire city to read the same book. Throughout the month of April, starting April 1, New Yorkers can vote for which favorite book they would love the entire city to read this summer. And this year, they all happen to be female writers! What a great way to kick off Women’s History Month. The winning book will be announced in May.
The longlist for the 2019 Women’s Prize for Fiction was announced today. This year’s longlist contains books that are from both new and well-established authors that span from a range of genres, including seven debut novels.
The category winners for the 2018 Costa Book Awards have just been announced. The Costa Book Awards is one the UK’s most prestigious literary prizes that recognizes great books throughout the year, written by authors based in the UK and Ireland.
I enjoy this book award since the books that are picked, either shortlisted or the winners, are always good book choices and great reads to add to your TBR shelf. The coveted Costa Book of the Year 2018 will be announced on January 29.
