Man Booker Prize Longlist announced - first graphic novel makes the list

The Man Booker Prize is open to writers of any nationality writing in English and published in the UK and Ireland.  This year's longlist of thirteen novels includes, for the first time, a graphic novel, Sabrina by Nick Drnaso.  

Man Booker Longlist -

At TRS, we have a growing collection of graphic novels, both the Discovery and War Memorial Libraries, which are really popular with our students.  

With research showing that students who read for up to 30 minutes a day are more likely to achieve beyond expected levels for their age group than those that don't, graphic novels are a great way of encouraging reading for pleasure, especially among reluctant readers. 

Look out for more graphic novels in the Autumn term!

The Man Booker shortlist of six books will be announced on 20th September and the winner will be announced on 16th October.
