The Booker Prize is the leading literary award in the English speaking world, and has brought recognition, reward and readership to outstanding fiction for over five decades.

Libraries are invited to register to host an exclusive shortlist event. Hosted by Coventry University and chaired by Lemn Sissay, the event will feature live readings and a Q&A with the six shortlisted authors. More information about the shortlisted books can be found here

Participating libraries will receive a link to stream the event. This can either be shown live (29 October, 7-8.30pm) or as a recording in the following days before the winner is announced on 3 November. Participating libraries will also receive additional materials including information about the shortlisted books and a quiz to use during your event.

Please fill in this survey to register your interest to host a shortlist streaming event. 

Final details and availability of this livestreaming/recording are to be confirmed. Libraries registering here will be updated with further news. 

If you haven't yet downloaded a free digital POS pack to promote the Prize, you can get one for free in The Reading Agency shop.
