Wellcome Trust Book Prize judging panel announced

The panel is chaired by science writer and broadcaster Vivienne Parry. Judges include Joanna Bourke, Professor of History and prize-winning author of nine books; Roger Highfield, Editor of New Scientist; Tim Lott, prize-winning author; and Erica Wagner, Literary Editor of The Times.

Entries for this year’s prize have closed and a shortlist of six books will be announced at The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival in October 2011. The winner will be announced at a ceremony in November 2011 at Wellcome Collection in London – “the Wellcome Trust’s free destination for the incurably curious, which explores the connections between medicine, life and art.”
