Wellcome Trust Book Prize judging panel unveiled

18th July 2011

The judging panel for the 2011 Wellcome Trust Book Prize, which recognises the finest fiction or non-fiction work centred around medicine, has been unveiled.

This year's judges include Joanna Bourke, prize-winning author and professor of history at Birkbeck College, University of London.

She will be joined by fellow author Tim Lott, Roger Highfield, editor of New Scientist, and Erica Wagner, literary editor of The Times.

The panel is chaired by science writer and broadcaster Vivienne Parry, who said the award recognises the role of both science and the arts and helps to bring them together.

'I've only just begun my reading and already these books have made me laugh, made me cry, made me humble and given me a far greater insight into the human condition than I ever had before,' she added.

A six-strong shortlist for the prize will be unveiled at The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival in October, with the winner announced in November.
