Jo Swinson Shortlisted for 2018 Parliamentary Book Award
Achieve It’, has been shortlisted for the prestigious award.
The shortlist includes nine books across three categories and was launched by the Booksellers Association (BA) and the Publishers Association (PA) in 2016, with an aim to target the very best of political writing. Voted for by parliamentarians, publishers are invited to nominate books and authors; however, it is booksellers who write the shortlist.
With awards presented in the House of Commons on the 4th December, the MD of the BA, Meryl Halls, had this to say:
“The Parliamentary Book Awards showcase the incredible range of political writing today, and we are looking forward to celebrating this year’s shortlist of interesting and important books. The shortlist, voted on by Britain’s booksellers, highlights some of the most pressing issues in 2018, exploring gender politics, poverty, and the responsibilities of politicians to the public. It is now up to our parliamentarians to vote for their favourites in the coming weeks.”
