The Walter Scott Prize
June 16, 2018 at 6:15 pm - 7:00 pm
Now in its ninth year and one of Britain’s major literary prizes, it honours Walter Scott, the founder and still the moving spirit behind historical fiction. Sponsored by the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch, past winners of the £25,000 prize include Robert Harris, Hilary Mantel, Tan Twan Eng and Sebastian Barry. This year’s shortlist is probably the best ever and it will be very difficult to predict – and choose – a winner. Championed by Elizabeth Buccleuch, the winners of the Young Walter Scott Prize will be presented with their awards while Sebastian Barry returns to present the adult award.
