In a huge turn of events, the Booker Prizes on September 30, 2020 revealed that they have postponed the date for the winner announcement to November 19.
The reason: earlier the Booker Prize 2020 winner was planned to be announced on November 17 and according to latest news, the much-awaited memoir of former President of the United States Barack Obama will be released on the same date. Thus to avoid two major literary events happening on the same day, the Booker Prize 2020 winner announcement has now been postponed by two days, to November 19.Announcing the news, the Booker Prizes tweeted:
Confirming the news, Gaby Wood, Literary Director of the Booker Prize Foundation, said in an official statement, “We thought it unfortunate that two of the most exciting literary events of the year – the announcement of the winner of the 2020 Booker Prize and the publication of Barack Obama’s memoirs – were due to fall on the same day, so we’ve decided to give readers a couple of days’ breathing space. Our unprecedented ceremony without walls, devised in collaboration with the BBC, will take place across multiple platforms on 19 November instead. Details about how to watch and take part will be announced shortly.”

Barack Obama’s memoir is one of the most highly-anticipated books of the year.

Obama’s memoirs will be published as a four-part volume; volume one is titled ‘A Promised Land’.

The book will cover Barack Obama’s historic win as the first bi-racial president of the US and his first term in office. The book is planned to be released two weeks after the Election Day in the US, on November 17, 2020.

Forgiveness is the quality of the brave, not of the cowardly. The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
