First launched in 1990 and now run by The Bookseller, the British Book Awards seek to showcase and celebrate the best books, the best bookshops and the best publishers.
In 2020 they celebrated 30 years of the awards with the winners due to be announced on 18 May 2020. The pandemic meant that they were not awarded until 29 June 2020.
