Contact the Authors (2020)

We have contact … !

The fol­low­ing Twit­ter han­dles are the ones we could find for the authors of the books on this years’ Bangkok Book Award lists. If you like their book, why not tell them?

If you tweet a com­ment, or con­tact an author/illustrator, it would be great if you could include the hash­tag #BangkokBookAwards2020

Thank you!
