The fifth annual Palestine Book Awards celebrated this year’s publications on Palestine yesterday evening.

Leading figures from the political, academic and literary communities joined in the celebration and unveiling of the winners of 2016 Palestine Book Awards.

MEMO’s flagship event is the culmination of months of hard work. Nominations start in January with submissions being made by national and international publishers. Seven books are then then shortlisted from three categories: academic, memoir and creative, by an expert panel of judges.

All books entered into the running for consideration this year were published between June 2015 and June 2016.

To submit a book for consideration for next year’s awards, keep an eye on the Palestine Book Awards‘ website where the opening dates will be listed shortly.
