British Book Awards 2022


We are once again delighted to be the accessibility partner for the British Book Awards, one of the most celebrated occasions in the UK book awards calendar. Showcasing the best of British talent, a knowledgeable panel of writers, broadcasters and industry experts will select winners from 72 shortlisted titles across 12 categories, and we are busying ourselves to add as many of these as we can to the Calibre collection.

The awards, also known as The Nibbies, aim to ‘affirm, connect and energise all who have a hand in creating books and all who read them’. That is why we are passionate about our partnership, which allows us to involve our members as much as possible. The Nibbies represent those books that have touched, connected and engaged with audiences, celebrating everyone involved in bringing the finished article to the hands – or ears – of the reader.

Titles previously shortlisted, and favourites of Calibre members, include:

This year's winners will be announced at a ceremony on 23rd May, which is being held at the Grosvenor House London as well as livestreamed for those that cannot be there in person. Tune in here to watch the event unfold on the night, it's free for all to view and there is no need to pre-register.

We are curating those from this year’s shortlisted books that we can add to the Calibre collection on our special British Book Awards page here.
