Orange Prize Shortlist 2011

Celebrating its 16th anniversary this year, the Orange Prize showcases excellence, originality and accessibility in women’s writing throughout the world. Today, its shortlist was announced:

- Room by Emma Donoghue
- The Memory of Love by Aminatta Forna
- Grace Williams Says it Loud by Emma Henderson
- Great House by Nicole Krauss
- The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht
- Annabel by Kathleen Winter

The winner will be announced at an award ceremony on 8 June 2011.

I think it’s only fair to mention that Canadian-based writer Kathleen Winter used to write scripts for Sesame Street and should win the prize for that fact alone.
