61. THE POLITICS OF PRIZES
Literary prizes are often highly contentious, with arguments regularly raging about judges, winners, criteria and the ongoing tension between work with broad public reach and more literary craft.
In this special discussion supported by Booksellers NZ, 2011 Booker Prize judge Dame Stella Rimington joins New Zealanders Stephen Stratford and Jenny Pattrick for a lively conversation with NZ Post Book Awards Governance Committee Chair - and non-award winning author - Sam Elworthy on if and how literary prizes can remain relevant and serve writers, booksellers, publishers and the public.
