Readings from the 2016 shortlist in the Shed of Stories

We’re delighted to announce that this year, for the first time, the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction will be attending Latitude festival to bring you a series of exciting live literary events.

Our events will see Prize co-founder bestselling novelist Kate Mosse in conversation with 2016 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction winner Lisa McInerney; an exceptional panel of inspiring women including comedian and writer Sara Pascoe, author Naomi Alderman, award-winning campaigner Leyla Hussein, and Amy Annette (editor of I Call Myself a Feminist) discussing the topic of Women and Power; and back by popular demand following their appearance at the Baileys Prize Pop-Up Book Bar earlier this year, actors James Rastall and Tori Allen-Martin read from the six books shortlisted for the 2016 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction in their own inimitable style.
