The Reading Agency and BBC Arts have teamed up for the Big Jubilee Read, and we’ve celebrated the books and authors on the list who are part of the Booker family.

The campaign emphasises reading for pleasure, and one book has been chosen for each year of the Queen’s reign, with the selected titles coming from across the Commonwealth.

Suzy Klein, head of arts and classical music TV at the BBC, said: “The list of 70 books - one for each year of Elizabeth II’s reign - is a real opportunity to discover stories from across continents and taking us through the decades, books that we might never have otherwise read, and reading authors whose work deserves a spotlight to be shone on it.”

There are 21 Booker Prize winning, shortlisted and longlisted novels on the list, and a total of 31 authors from the Booker family, including past judges as well as nominated writers.

Get to know the books and authors, and come back for exclusive archive material and interviews, as well as reading guides and more.
