Ground-Breaking Winners of British Book Awards Announced | Writer’s Relief

For the first time, the winners of the top British Book Awards went to Black authors.  In this article on TheGuardian.com, Writer’s Relief learned that Candice Carty-Williams and Bernardine Evaristo won the book of the year and author of the year categories. The judges stated that Carty-Williams’s bestseller, Queenie, was “a book that was capable of changing industry perceptions of what stories can be commercially and critically successful.” And author of the year winner Evaristo also won the fiction category, beating her fellow Booker winner Margaret Atwood.
