IBW Book Award Shortlist 2013

Boomage-mediumWill Man Booker and Costa prize-winner Hilary Mantel bag another prize for Bring Up The Bodies? She could well do just that.  Along with Rachel Joyce, last year’s Orange Prize-winner Madeline Miller,  John Lanchester, Barbara Kingsolver and Simon Armitage, she’s on the Independent Bookseller Award shortlists.

Independent members of the Booksellers’ Association select their best 10 adult (and 12 children’s) books from a list put together by publishers. Two judging panels select the winning books – panel consist of authors, broadcasters and booksellers.   The winner will be announced on 29th June.
