This year’s longlist for the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books was announced on 1st June.
Shortlist will be announced in September 2013. Winner will be announced on 25 November 2013
We are hoping to set up student and staff book clubs to read a selection of the shortlisted books and provoke some lively discussion about them next academic year.
We will be buying copies of the books for the Library.
In the meantime why not kickstart your Science reading with last year’s shortlist? All of the titles are available in the Library.
From this link to the shortlist you can read the first chapter of each book before deciding which to read.
Last year’s winner was The Information by James Gleick
Or if Science isn’t your thing….don’t forget we have plenty of excellent fiction including the Women’s Prize for Fiction Shortlist 2013
