Caught by the River

The Wainwright Prize 2020

8th September 2020

Heartfelt congratulations to Dara McAnulty, and his publishers Little Toller, on Diary of a Young Naturalist‘s just-announced Wainwright Prize for UK Nature Writing win. You can revisit Sue Brooks’ review of the book, published back in May — in which she extolls that ‘This is much more than a diary of a young naturalist […] it is the comprehensive story of the first fourteen years of a writer with exceptional gifts’ — here.

Congratulations too Benedict Macdonald, author of Rebirding, who is the inaugural winner of the Wainwright Prize’s second category, for books about global conservation and climate change.

The £5,000 prize fund will be shared by the authors.
