The Bread and Roses Longlist 2016

21 Jan

We are very happy to announce the Longlist for the 2016 award, which this year features a record 57 entries. To qualify, all titles must fit the award’s political requirements, and have been published in 2015 by an author who is primarily resident in the UK.

The Shortlist will be announced in March, and the award ceremony will be taking place at the London Radical Bookfair on Saturday May 7th. This year’s bookfair will be held at Goldsmiths University’s Great Hall.
