We are all lovers of history, and we are living through a remarkable moment after the death of Her Majesty the Queen and the accession of King Charles. We suspect that our members and readers will want to take some time to watch and think about this change of reigns. As a result we’ve decided to delay the announcements of the HWA Crown Awards Longlists for a week until the 28 September to make sure the amazing nonfiction, debuts and novels we’ve been reading will get the attention they deserve. The shortlists will still be announced on 25 October. We will be announcing the winners on 23 November and holding our awards party that evening.
We’ll be announcing the awards on twitter via @HistoriaHWA and follow up with all the details of the selected books on www.historiamag.com and here.
