Orange Prize for Fiction Readings

This is a unique opportunity to hear the shortlisted authors read and discuss their work with this year’s chair of judges, Sandi Toksvig.

The Orange Prize for Fiction is one of the UK’s most prestigious literary awards for fiction, and was established in 1996. The winner receives £30,000 and the Bessie, a limited edition bronze figurine - both anonymously endowed. The Orange Prize for fiction celebrates the excellence and originality of women writing in English throughout the world. Previous winners include Kate Grenville, Linda Grant, Suzanne Berne, Carol Shields, Anne Michaels and Helen Dunmore. 2003’s winner was Valerie Martin. Details of this year’s shortlist will be announced on 26 April and more information is available at www.orangeprize.co.uk

Sandi Toksvig is an author, journalist and broadcaster.
