This past week, the YA Book Prize announced the 2021 shortlist for the prize. The book prize, launched in 2014, awards a YA title written by an author living in the UK or Ireland. The prize is also run by the book trad magazine, The Bookseller, in partnership with the Hay Festival. These 10 books are in the running to win this year’s overall £2,000 award.

Classics That Entered the Public Domain in 2021

Get your 1920s dancing shoes on! On January 1, a batch of classics has entered the public domain. Those who do not know what the public domain means, copyrighted works (books, movies, music, etc.) enter the United States’ public domain after 95 years.
