Annual Booker Prize Challenge

The English Department’s Annual Booker Prize Challenge was held just before half-term.  The event challenges students to read all of the six novels on the Man Booker Prize short-list in the five weeks between the list being announced and the awards evening. Several students took part, prompting some lively and well-informed discussion. Two students managed to read all six books; an impressive feat given the challenging nature of the novels, as well as their length.  Congratulations to Harry Tidby and Jane Bentham who both completed the challenge!
