Costa Book Awards Category Winners Announced

logo_book_awardsThis year has proved to be good year for women writers in the Costas as women have written all five of the category winning books. Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel is again proving extremely popular and picks up the award for Novel of the Year after winning the Man Booker Prize in 2012. The Biography of the Year was Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes by Mary Talbot, a graphic novel illustrated by her husband. The first novel award was The Innocents by Francesca Segal.

The Poetry Book of the year category was won by Kathleen Jamie for The Overhaul and the Children’s book category was won by Sally Gardner for her brilliant novel, Maggot Moon.

The overall winner will be announced on the 29th January and Hilary Mantel is the favourite to walk away with the prize. Last year’s winner was Pure by Andrew Miller.

All the books are available in our libraries. You can reserve a copy online and pick up from your nearest branch or mobile.
