The Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction is the UK’s premier non-fiction book prize. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, a Winner of Winners Award was announced to recognise the outstanding work of the previous 24 prize-winners. This one-off award, crowning the best work of non-fiction from the past 25 years, goes to James Shapiro, winner in 2006. His book 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare follows the playwright as he invests in the new Globe theatre and writes four of his most famous plays – Henry V, Julius Caesar, As You Like It and Hamlet. Joining us digitally, Shapiro talks to historian and writer Sarah Churchwell (in person).
