With the Man Booker Prize winner announcement less than two weeks away we have a number of ways to discover more about this year’s shortlist.
We have partnered with Apple to host a series of podcasts featuring readings and exclusive interviews with the six shortlisted authors which are now available to download from the iTunes Store.
There are also opportunities to join this year’s Man Booker Prize authors at four major events around the country. The Library of Birmingham, The Times Cheltenham Festival and London’s Southbank Centre will play host to the shortlisted authors where they will discuss and read from their shortlisted novels.
The Southbank Centre event has already sold out but we’ll be streaming the whole evening live to our website. You can see the six shortlisted authors together for the first time and hear their work, one of which will be awarded the prize a few days later, from the comfort of your home.
In addition, following the winner announcement we will present an exciting, free event at the Regent Street Apple Store where the winning author will discuss their book and what it feels like to win the UK’s most prestigious literature prize.
Full details of shortlist author events can be found on here and you can register for your place at the Apple Store winner event on iTunes.
