Atlantic shortlisted for Indie Publisher of the Year at the British Book Awards

19th March 2021

Atlantic Books has been shortlisted for Independent Publisher of the Year at The British Book Awards (the Nibbies). Giving their reasoning behind the shortlisting, The Bookseller said:

Shortlisted here for the third year in a row, Atlantic continued its renaissance as a general indie that combines commercial and critical success. John Kampfner and Chris Atkins gave it Sunday Times spots, and its backlist had a hatful of steady sellers.

In addition, Mike Harpley, publishing director for non-fiction, has been shortlisted for Editor of the Year. The Bookseller said:

Atlantic Books’ non-fiction sales have more than doubled since Harpley arrived there five years ago. He generated two unexpected but distinctively Atlantic bestsellers in 2020: John Kampfner’s Why The Germans Do It Better and Chris Atkins’ A Bit of a Stretch.

The winners will be announced via a digital event on the 13th May.
