Event description
Join us for the very first online event with the winner of the 2021 Booker Prize.

About this event

Now in its 53rd year, the Booker Prize is one of the most prestigious literary awards for fiction in the English language.

The winner will be chosen from a shortlist which represents extraordinary stories, from war-torn Sri Lanka to a divided South Africa to an American novel which investigates the climate crisis and the prospect of life on other planets. The list also includes a novel about a Somali sailor hanged for a crime he didn’t commit in 1950s Wales, a contemporary story of the collisions between a social media guru’s real and online life, and the tale of a female aviator’s disappearance in 1950 in the Antarctic.

This year’s shortlisted authors, announced on 14 September, are: Anuk Arudpragasam for A Passage North; Damon Galgut for The Promise; Patricia Lockwood for No One Is Talking About This; Nadifa Mohamed for The Fortune Men; Richard Powers for Bewilderment and Maggie Shipstead for Great Circle.

On 9 November, join us for a live interview with the winner of this year’s prize, to hear them discuss their work and answer some of your questions.

The winner will be announced on 3 November. They will be selected by a panel of five judges: Horatia Harrod, Natascha McElhone, Chigozie Obioma, Rowan Williams and Maya Jasanoff (chair).

Running time: 60 minutes
