Burial Rites by Hannah Kent has been shortlisted for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award!

Nominated by public libraries around the world, the IMPAC Award 2015 shortlist includes writers from Africa, America, Australia, Brazil, France, Ireland and the UK. Margaret Hayes, Dublin City Librarian, said that "while many of the stories reflect contemporary themes, they bring us characters facing timeless challenges of love and loss, of innocence and isolation." We're looking forward to June 17, when the winner is announced.
