Do you have #TimeForTheBooker?

In these strange days, while we’re all practising social distancing and doing our best to #stayathome, reading is one of the things that can offer us escapism and pleasure. Has there ever been a better #TimeForTheBooker? We think not! So, to help spread a bit of joy, the Booker Prize team are launching a social media campaign at noon, Tuesday, 7 April.

The campaign will recommend books from the catalogue of Booker Prize and International Booker Prize winners, shortlisted and longlisted titles from over the years. Participants include Mariella Frostrup, Lola Young, Bidisha Mamata, Howard Jacobson and Carmen Callil.

To get involved, simply post a photo of you and your recommended Booker Prize book and tag the Booker channels on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. In the accompanying post, tell us why you love that book and use our hashtag #TimeForTheBooker so we can share your recommendation with others! If you’re looking for your next great read, browse our list of longlisted, shortlisted and winning titles.

Stay safe and well, and enjoy your reading!
