The study and appreciation of the life, works and times of Arnold Bennett
Arnold Bennett Book Prize – Update
“Thank to everyone for submitting your book for the Arnold Bennett Book Prize.
Normally we should like to have published the short list by late May and the presentation would have been made at the Arnold Bennett Society Annual Conference in June. However that has now been postponed. In these unprecedented circumstances the whole of our committee has not yet been able to read all the books as we are scattered and isolated and so, at the moment, we cannot say when a decision will be made. I’d like to think that we shall be able to announce the short list and then the winner by autumn even if we cannot make a formal presentation.
I know that this is very disappointing but I’m sure that you will all understand.Once again many thanks for your entries”.
