Chaired by the 2021 Chair of Judges and award-winning author Bernardine Evaristo and hosted by Founder-Director of the Women’s Prize for Fiction and bestselling author Kate Mosse, the event will feature readings and interviews with the 2021 shortlisted authors, plus discussion about their nominated books and the opportunity to ask your own questions.

The event will be followed by a book signing. All of this year’s books will be available to buy from our Waterstones pop-up, and for the first time ever, we will be running a pop-up shop selling official Women’s Prize merchandise. You can also opt to buy books and merchandise with your ticket.
