IMPAC Dublin Literary Award Nominations - Help us decide!

Eastern Regional Libraries has been asked by the State Library to participate in the IMPAC Dublin Literary Awards.

Each year, public libraries throughout the world are invited to submit titles of "high literary merit" for consideration of the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award 2015. With 152 international fiction books nominated by public libraries in 39 countries, this prestigious award is valued at approximately $154,000 AUD.

As the shortlist for the nominations by the State Library has been announced - we here at ERL thought we would ask people for their thoughts to help shape our voting decision. The State Library will then send the top 3 nominated titles by Victorian libraries to the IMPAC Dublin Literary Awards for consideration.

Have you read any of these titles? Who would you vote for?
