Don’t miss the literary event of the year, as the winner of the Golden Man Booker is announced.
The closing event of the festival, Golden Man Booker Live brings together a star-studded line-up to celebrate the one-off crowning of the best work of fiction from each of the last five decades of the Man Booker Prize.
Five judges each discuss the novel they have chosen as the best of their allocated decade. They are: editor and writer Robert McCrum (1970s); poet Lemn Sissay MBE (1980s); novelist Kamila Shamsie (1990s); broadcaster and novelist Simon Mayo (2000s); and poet Hollie McNish (2010s).
There are also readings of the ‘Golden Five’ shortlist from actors, and the announcement of the winner, as voted for by the public.
