The 2019 Booker Prize has New Sponsorship

After 18 years of sponsorship, the Man Group has withdrawn from the sponsorship of the leading literary award for the best novel written in English and published in the United Kingdom or Ireland. Now, in 2019, what had been the Man Booker Prize, now returns to its original name, the Booker Prize.
The Booker Prize has a new sponsor, the Crankstart Foundation and its new subsidiary the Booker Prize Foundation, founded and funded by the Silicon Valley Welsh-born billionaire Sir Michael Moritz, and his wife, Chicago-born author Harriet Heyman. The Booker Prize Foundation will also fund the International Booker Prize.
The Booker Prize longlist will be announced on July 24; the shortlist on September 3; and the winner chosen on October 14. Please sign up as a follower of this blog for these announcements, updates and reviews of the Booker Prize competition.
