It was a lunchtime event and many regular CBD browsers on breaks from their offices happily stood for an hour or so to listen to this amazing and diverse bunch of authors.

The crew of writers comprised Best Book and Best First Book winners and, beside the IMPAC Award, the Commonwealth Writers' Prize is one of the only prizes to draw on authors that are genuinely from all across the globe.

My spies tell me it was an excellent event, greatly enjoyed by all. Especially people looking for an excuse not to get back to the office in a hurry. Those in pic left seem deeply engrossed!
