Katherine Rundell double longlisted for Wainwright Prize 2023

Katherine Rundell is double longlisted for The James Cropper Wainwright Prize, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary. Her adult non-fiction book The Golden Mole: And Other Living Treasure (Faber), illustrated by Talya Baldwin, is longlisted for the Nature Writing Prize, and her children's picture book The Zebra’s Great Escape (Bloomsbury), illustrated by Sara Ogilvie, is longlisted for the Children’s Writing on Nature and Conservation Prize.

The prize is named after nature writer Alfred Wainwright and aims to inspire readers to connect with nature and explore the outdoors. In celebration of its 10th anniversary, the prize will return to Kendal in the Lake District where Wainwright worked and lived, to host an exclusive festival-style celebration of the prize and its legacy.
