Koshka Duff, Florian Grosset, Hsiao-Hung Pai, Rhian E Jones & A Contributor To Empire’s Endgame
The Bread and Roses Award is a book prize with a difference: presented by the Alliance of Radical Booksellers, and without the backing of corporate sponsors, the award seeks to recognise and celebrate excellence in the field of radical political non-fiction.
2022 marks 100 years since the Bread and Roses strike of 1912 and 10 years since the Award was established by Housmans in 2012. It has since been run in collaboration with Five Leaves Bookshop and then us at Lighthouse.
From almost 70 submissions, our panel of judges are thrilled to present a shortlist of 5 titles, and at this event to announce the winner we will hear from the authors and editors of all 5 shortlisted books! Come find out more about 5 tremendous books from those who brought them into the world:
- Abolishing the Police, Ed Koshka Duff from Dog Section Press
- Ciao Ousmane: The Hidden Exploitation of Italy’s Migrant Workers, Hsiao-Hung Pai from from Hurst
- The Chagos Betrayal : How Britain Robbed an Island and Made Its People Disappear, Florian Grosset from Myriad Editions
- Empire’s Endgame, Gargi Bhattacharyya et al from Pluto Press
- Paint your town red, Matthew Brown and Rhian E Jones from Repeater Books
This event will last 1 hour online, we’ll get a wee introduction to each book, an opportunity to ask speakers questions and then we’ll announce the 2022 Winner of the Bread & Roses Award live!
