IFFP Readers Prize
BCLT worked with English PEN, Booktrust and The Reading Agency to give 300 readers the chance to shadow this year’s Independent Foreign Fiction Prize
Readers met up atthe Free Word Centre on 18 May to vote on their favourite shortlisted title, crowned the Independent Foreign Fiction Readers’ Prize (IFFRP) winner and enjoyed a programme of activities on the day, including a translation duel with shortlisted translators Rosalind Harvey and Lorenza Garcia and a talk from IFFP judge and author Elif Shafak.
