Julia Eccleshare says: “As the Branford Boase Award enters its 21st year, we are delighted to have another exciting and particularly diverse set of books to consider. Here are comedies, murder mysteries, adventures set in imaginary worlds, in faraway countries and in landscapes familiar to us all. The wealth of talent on display continues to inspire us and we are very much looking forward to discussing the longlist with our judges.”
The Branford Boase Award is sponsored by Walker Books.
The shortlist for the Award will be announced on Thursday 30th April 2020. We are hoping to announce the winner on September 24th at a ceremony in London.
The Henrietta Branford Writing Competition, the annual competition for young people which runs in conjunction with the Branford Boase Award, is also open.
