The Walter Scott Prize
June 17, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 7:15 pm
Now in its 8th year, this distinctive prize honours the legacy of Walter Scott, the founding father of historical fiction. Sponsored by the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch, past winners of the £25,000 prize have included Robert Harris, Hilary Mantel, Tan Twan Eng and Sebastian Barry. This year’s shortlist is the best ever and it will be very difficult to predict – and choose – a winner. And championed by Elizabeth Buccleuch, the winners of the Young Walter Scott Prize will be presented with their awards by Tan Twan Eng, the winner of the Walter Scott Prize in 2012.
