YA Book Prize 2023

The perfect way to get a snapshot of a range of authors and their books – last year’s YA Book Prize was a big hit, so we’re very excited that the award is returning for 2023. Come and meet some of the incredible authors shortlisted for this year’s YA Book Prize as they talk about and read from their books ahead of the big reveal. We’ll unveil the line-up for this event in June when the shortlist is announced. Organised by The Bookseller magazine, a team from the publication firstly selects the shortlist, before a panel of experts and teenage judges decide on the winner. The winner is chosen based on which book the judges believe is the best-written and that they would be most likely to share with young adults. With previous winners including Patrice Lawrence’s Orangeboy and Adiba Jaigirdar’s Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating, we can’t wait to find out who will be joining us this year.
