Since the awards began in 2008, they have highlighted the works of well over 130 authors, almost 170 titles, and more than 90 publishers.

For 2017 we will once again be offering a top prize of £1,000 to the overall East Anglian Book of the Year, courtesy of PACCAR Foundation.

As well as the six subject categories,  Fiction; Poetry; History and Tradition; Biography and Memoir; General Non-Fiction; and Children’s Books (from which the overall winner is chosen), this year will also see the return of our award for lifetime achievement in local publishing, and also the ‘Book by the Cover’ design award, sponsored by the East Anglian Writers.

Chris Rushby, Books & Stationery Buyer, Jarrold, said: “Jarrold is delighted once again to be part of the East Anglian Book Awards in this milestone tenth year.

“In over 30 years of bookselling I’ve never come across a part of the country with the sheer breadth of good writing and publishing that this one continues to display - and a reading public as fascinated by the history and culture of its region.

“These awards both celebrate that breadth of activity and highlight the best of it, which can only be a good thing.”
