The shortlist for the Eccles Centre & Hay Festival Writer’s Award has been revealed, featuring Alia Trabucco Zerán and Rodrigo Hasbún. Now in its twelfth year, the prize grants £20,000 annually to two writers – of fiction and/or non-fiction - for a yet-to-be-published book relating to the Americas (North, Central and South America and the Caribbean).
