‘The Hay Festival is a wonderful celebration of publishing, ideas, and writing’ – Philip Jones

To have the YA Book Prize presented at the Hay Festival this year is a real honour and step up for a prize that is still only in its second year. To bring the 10 short-listed authors and their books to a stage in front of a YA Hay audience is hugely important not just for the prize, but for the authors at a time when YA is just beginning to establish itself as a growing force within publishing and writing. The Hay Festival is a wonderful celebration of publishing, ideas, and writing, and The Bookseller is delighted to be partnering with it to showcase 10 incredibly talented authors.
