Man Booker International Prize - shadowing opportunity

Mbi box

The Man Booker International Prize celebrates translated fiction at its finest. The prize is awarded for a single novel or collection of short stories, and both the writer and the translator will be rewarded equally for their contribution.

This year’s longlist will be announced on Wednesday 15 March, and you will be able to find out all about it on our News page.

Reading groups are invited to pitch for their opportunity to shadow the Man Booker International Prize this year. 6 lucky groups will be selected and will receive 10 copies of one of the shortlisted books. In exchange, the groups will read and review the shortlisted title with their group and take part in #MBI2017 conversations online, joining in discussions about the books and sharing comments and pictures.

To apply, please log in and fill in your details below by Friday 7 April.
