Middle East Monitor's (MEMO) Palestine Book Awards are back for the 10th year and we invite you to submit your best entries. Winning books will be chosen from a number of categories, including Academic, Translation, Creative, Memoir, Social History.

MEMO will be hosting an awards ceremony to honour and endorse the best books written in English on the subject of Palestine. The awards promote existing books on Palestine as well as encouraging new authors to write about this sensitive but important topic with the aim of drawing attention to a cause that rests at the heart of the Middle East.

Awards winners will be announced at the annual invitation-only event held in a top London hotel in November 2021 where publishers, authors, journalists, academics and politicians will share a platform. There will also be the potential for interviews, reviews and other promotional events to increase awareness and sales of the books.

We welcome all books submitted by publishers. Please review the eligibility criteria and nominate a book here.
