The winners of Booker Prize 2019 were announced on 15th October 2019 and two women share the prize for their incredible novels.

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” ― Marcus Tullius Cicero. Books and literature are something that keep the culture alive. It is what nourishes creativity and plants the seed of imagination and good thoughts in us. Reading books is an exercise to the soul and writing them is an art. Booker Prize is an award that was introduced to appreciate such great artists who weave magic with words and their imagination. The results for Booker Prize 2019 are out and it has left people with mixed feelings.

The winners for Booker Prize 2019 were announced on 15th October and Margaret Atwood and Bernardine Evaristo won this year’s prize. Margaret won the prize for her book ‘The Testaments’ and Bernardine won it for her book ‘Girl, Woman, Other’. This win comes with a lot of first times as Evaristo is the first black woman to win a Booker Prize and at 79, Atwood becomes the oldest winner for the prize. People, however, have a mixed feeling as this is the first time that the award is shared between two individuals.
