Nero Book Awards

Each year, the Nero Book Awards will highlight great authors and outstanding reads across four categories: Children’s Fiction, Fiction, Debut Fiction and Non-Fiction. You’ll be able to take your pick from a collection of 16 books, written by authors based in the UK and Ireland.

The criteria? The judges will be asked to choose the books they would most want to press into the hands of friends and family for their quality and readability.

Established as a not-for-profit organisation, the Nero Book Awards are run by the independent, family-owned coffee house group, Caffè Nero in partnership with The Booksellers Association, Brunel University London and Right To Dream.

However you take your coffee, whatever your taste in books, there will be something here for you – whether that’s discovering fantastic new writing by great authors, or hearing about the craft that goes into writing a great book, straight from the author’s mouth.
