The Hunter Davies Lakeland Book of the Year awards aim to encourage and celebrate writing and publishing in Cumbria, and enhance the longstanding literary heritage of the County. Whilst the awards enrich the cultural profile of Cumbria, they have also raised thousands of pounds in funding for worthy charities with Cumbrian connections.
