    Meet the 2021 Booker Prize-shortlisted authors in a live-streamed evening of readings and conversation, chaired by Kit de Waal.

    The Booker Prize is synonymous with the finest literary fiction; it has recognised and celebrated many of the greatest novels of the last half-century.

    As the finale of the London Literature Festival, this exclusive event brings together the shortlisted authors ahead of the announcement of the winner in early November.

    Kit de Waal is the editor of Common People: An Anthology of Working-Class Writers, and the co-founder of The Big Book Weekend. Her latest book of short stories, Supporting Cast, was published by Penguin in July 2020.
