A New Chair Has Been Named By The Booker Prize Foundation

Mark Damazer has been named as the new chair of the Booker Prize Foundation. Damazer was previously associated with BBC News. This news was announced by the foundation via twitter.

According to a statement shared by the Foundation, the new chair has been stern in his decision to not repeat what happened last year: joint winners. “What you don’t want last year to do is to set a precedent and I think this is a rather crucial point.”

It was also stated that the winner of the International Booker 2020 will be announced on August 26 digitally. The event has been postponed by three months and a reason for this was the case of closed bookshops.
