The Alliance of Radical Booksellers (ARB) is a supportive community for the UK’s radical booksellers. Members include Letterbox Library, Housmans Bookshop, Newham Bookshop and News from Nowhere. The ARB runs the Bread & Roses Award for Radical Publishing, administered by Housmans Bookshop. This independent prize for adult non-fiction literature ran for the 1st time in 2011, with the prize awarded in May 2012. The award is being run again this year – for more information, go to www.bread-and-roses.co.uk/
This year the ARB will be running a new, parallel, radical fiction children’s book prize: The Little Rebels Children’s Book Award. The prize will be administered by Letterbox Library on behalf of the ARB.
There will be lots more information about the prize and details how to submit a book very soon – watch this space!
