When the 2019 Booker Prize longlist was announced, Deedi (@deedireads) challenged herself to read them over a year. Reading this prize-winning literature ended up changing her reading life forever.
Each year, this literary award (Booker Prize) for fiction is one of the most prestigious literary prizes given to an author. This prize is awarded to what is the best novel of the year written in the English language and published in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. It is a prize that can transform the winner’s career. It can also change a reader’s life.
We will be discussing Deedi’s favorite Man Booker International Prize winners and how we can join her fun book club challenge on The StoryGraph. She shares her Booker of the Month details and where other readers can take this challenge with her.
