Cambridge Literary Festival shared Samuel Johnson Prize's photo.
"I suppose I'm looking for greatness- a book that is beautifully written and that feels important. Important not just because of its subject matter but because the author has illuminated more than the subject itself. A resonant piece of writing which might reach audiences who never imagined they could have been woken up and moved by such a book." - Tessa Ross, former Controller of Film and Drama and head of Film 4 and judge for the 2015 Samuel Johnson Prize
Proof that reading is good for you!
