The Bread and Roses Award for Radical Publishing 2021 Shortlist

13 Sep

The Alliance of Radical Booksellers is delighted to announce the shortlist for the Bread and Roses Award for Radical Publishing 2021. Now in its tenth year, the Bread & Roses Award seeks to celebrate excellence in the field of radical political non-fiction.

The £500 prize will be awarded to the winner at a special event to be held at some point in early-October. The pandemic has forced us to delay this years award, and we are considering the possibility to hold an in-person award ceremony, however it may again take place online.

Our judges this year are Jane Elliot, Karen Shook, Tom Utterainer, and Jane Watts.

Please do also visit the website of our sister book prize, The Little Rebel’s Children’s Book Award, for their shortlist for the best books published in the UK for readers aged 0-12.
