Which novel, written by a woman, has had the biggest impact on your life?
The Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction want readers across the nation to share their #ThisBook: the novel, by a female author, that has most impacted, shaped or changed their life.
To launch the #ThisBook campaign, 19 inspirational women, marking 19 years of the Baileys Women’s Prize, including Baroness Valerie Amos, Martha Lane Fox, Caitlin Moran, Joanna Trollope and Jennifer Saunders have said which books have most impacted, shaped or changed their lives.
Their #ThisBook’s include much loved classics such as To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, selected by Shami Chakrabarti; modern favourites like Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, identified by Tanni Grey Thompson; and Lionel Shriver’s 2005 Women’s Prize winner, We Need to Talk About Kevin, chosen by Susanna Reid.
A series of portraits and films have been captured by renowned photographer and filmmaker Alice Hawkins showcasing the nineteen women discussing their #ThisBook and bringing their personal stories to life. See the full list of #ThisBook www.thisbook.com
