Get your book club a free reading pack for the Wellcome Trust Book Prize

12 Oct, 2012

beautiful booksWe’ve just announced the shortlist for the Wellcome Trust Book Prize 2012. The six books, three fiction and three non-fiction, feature an assortment of styles and genres, ranging from a thriller to a historical biography.

Each year, the Book Prize team produce a free pack of resources to help book groups and individual readers to explore the science behind the shortlisted titles. The packs contain thought-provoking questions and key passages from the text, as well as suggestions for related reading. The packs are free to download from the Book Prize website.

We’ll also be blogging about each of the shortlisted books over the coming weeks as we read the books ourselves. Expect our personal reactions; what got us thinking and talking, what we had questions about and what kept us reading.  Look out for the first post, on Mohammed Hanif’s ‘Our Lady of Alice Bhatti’, next week.

Are you reading a book from the shortlist? If so, we’d love to hear your thoughts! Leave a comment under the blog posts, on our Facebook page, or on Twitter using the hashtag #wtbp2012.
