The Bread and Roses Award is a book prize with a difference: presented by the Alliance of Radical Booksellers, and without the backing of corporate sponsors, the award seeks to recognise and celebrate excellence in the field of radical political non-fiction. Find out more at breadandrosesprize.wordpress.com.
Taking part in the ceremony and introducing their books will be shortlisted authors:
Becky Alexis-Martin (Disarming Doomsday)
Kate Charlesworth (Sensible Footwear)
Priyamvada Gopal (Insurgent Empire)
Ruth Kinna (The Government of No One)
Johny Pitts (Afropean)
Frances Ryan (Crippled) – represented by senior editor at Verso Leo Hollis
They will be joined by our guest judges: previous Bread & Roses winners Helena Earnshaw, Angharad Penrhyn Jones, and Hsiao-Hung Pai.
The event will be hosted by Ross Bradshaw of Five Leaves Bookshop.
The event is free; to register and receive a link, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
