Competition: Win tickets to the Man Booker Prize readings
We are giving away two pairs of tickets to the Man Booker Prize readings on Sunday, the 10th of October.
This is the only opportunity to hear the 2010 shortlisted authors reading live and, for the first time, the event will be held in Royal Festival Hall. It will include readings from the shortlisted authors, discussion and questions from the audience and will be chaired by Ion Trewin, Literary Director of the Man Booker Prizes. After the event the authors will be signing copies of their books too. More info here.
For the chance to win, unscramble the following to reveal the name of a past Booker winner:
