The Man Booker Prize for Fiction is the premier UK literary award, generating worldwide attention and, from time to time, controversy. To celebrate 50 glorious years, we have created an opportunity to witness the selection process in action as three former judges advocate the winning books they chose, presided over by Gaby Wood, Literary Director of The Booker Prize Foundation. The final decision is up to the audience.

Grayling, judge in 2003 and who chaired The Man Booker Prize judges in 2014, is a philosopher and writer; Erica Wagner, judge in 2002 and 2014, is the author of Chief Engineer: The Man Who Built Brooklyn Bridge; Gaby Wood was Head of Books on The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Telegraph.
