This year independent retailers are invited to enter a Fiction Uncovered window competition from 16 May 2013 with the winner announced during Independent Booksellers Week (29 June – 6 July). The independent bookseller which puts on the best window display featuring the eight titles and celebrating British writing will win a luxury Fortnum & Mason’s hamper and six bottles of prosecco.
