Bavarian Book Award 2016
The awards ceremony
The annual awards ceremony of the Bavarian Book Award will take place at Allerheilige-Hofkirche of the Münchner Residenz. The prize was awarded for the first time in 2014.

During the meeting which is open to the public the members of the jury – Franziska Augstein, Carolin Emcke and Denis Scheck – will have a discussion about the nominated fiction and non-fiction publications. And they will agree upon the final award winners at the end of this meeting.
