The Bread and Roses Award for Radical Publishing 2020 Shortlist

The Alliance of Radical Booksellers is delighted to announce the shortlist for the Bread and Roses Award for Radical Publishing 2020. Now in its ninth 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 mid-September. The pandemic has forced us to delay this years award, and we are holding out for the possibility to hold an in-person award ceremony, however if this proves impossible the award ceremony will take place on line.

Our guest judges this year are all previous winners of the Bread & Roses award: Helena Earnshaw, Angharad Penrhyn Jones, and Hsiao-Hung Pai.

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

Please remember we’re a small indie operating on a skeleton staff against the backdrop of a pandemic (which slows down our whole distribution network!) so your orders may take a couple of weeks to arrive- thanks so much for your patience and support!
