Parliamentary Book Awards

The Parliamentary Book Awards were launched by the Booksellers Association and the Publishers Association in 2016 to champion the best of political writing and recognise the important link between politics and the book world. The awards celebrate parliamentary writing across three categories: Best Biography, Memoir, or Autobiography by a Parliamentarian; Best Non-Biographical Book by a Parliamentarian; and Best Political Book by a non-Parliamentarian. Each year, publishers are invited to nominate titles and authors for the awards, with booksellers selecting the shortlists, and parliamentarians vote for the winner in each category.

The Parliamentary Book Awards are awarded for the previous year, for example in 2022 the 2021 Award is voted for and announced.
