Shadow the Man Booker International Prize 2019

Mbi

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 was announced on Wednesday 13 March, and you can 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. Six lucky groups will be selected and will receive 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 #MBI2019 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 Wednesday 3 April.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
