Meet some of the authors shortlisted for the 2019 Booker Prize for Fiction at this special MLF event. The Booker Prize is a byword for the finest literary fiction, with its canon containing some of the greatest writers since 1969, from Hilary Mantel and Kazuo Ishiguro, to Marlon James and Anna Burns. A few days before the 2019 winner is unveiled on Monday 14 October, join this year’s shortlisted authors for an evening of readings and conversation around their novels. The 2019 Booker Prize for Fiction is chaired by Peter Florence, and the judges are Afua Hirsch, Liz Calder, Xiaolu Guo and Joanna MacGregor. Presented in partnership with the Centre for New Writing and Creative Manchester.
