The People’s Book Prize is a literary competition aimed at finding, supporting and promoting new and undiscovered works — decided exclusively by the public. This year, we are proud that three authors have been nominated in the Summer Collection, non-fiction category:
- A Kitchen Fairytale by Iida van der Byl Knoefel
- A User’s Manual for the Human Body by Alex Wu
- Conquer Type 2 Diabetes by Richard Shaw
Last year, author of Understanding BRCA, Clarissa Foster, won the Beryl Bainbridge First Time Author award. Here is what she said about what winning this award meant to her:
“I am over the moon to have won ‘The Beryl Bainbridge First Time Author Award’ at The Finals of The People’s Book Prize, which was made possible by the many, many people who supported and voted for me – thank you to all who voted!
“Being a part of this prestigious book award has offered a fantastic platform to help raise much-needed further awareness of BRCA gene mutations, and the support I am offering to those, like myself, who are at an extremely high risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer during their lifetime.”
The winners in each category are determined by votes. The People’s Book Prize is a great opportunity for us and our authors to seek the support of our many readers and to be judged by the actual readers of our books.
