Independent Foreign Fiction Prize: 25th Anniversary Celebration

Thursday 16th April 2015 6pm - 7pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Join us as part of London Book & Screen Week to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize with this fantastic panel discussion. Looking at this year’s fifteen longlisted titles, as well as the final shortlist of six, the speakers will also discuss fiction in translation over the past 25 years in the context of the Prize.

The panel will comprise current and former IFFP judges, including The Independent’s Boyd Tonkin, translator Shaun Whiteside and award-winning authors Nadifa Mohamed and Elif Shafak.

The Independent Foreign Fiction Prize is awarded annually to the best work of contemporary fiction in translation. The 2015 Prize celebrates an exceptional work of fiction by a living author which has been translated into English from any other language and published in the United Kingdom in 2014. Uniquely, the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize acknowledges both the writer and the translator equally – each receives £5,000 – recognising the importance of the translator in their ability to bridge the gap between languages and cultures.

The Prize is funded by Arts Council England, managed by Book Trust and supported by The Independent and Champagne Taittinger. Stay up-to-date with the Prize on Twitter via @Booktrust and #IFFP
