Today new versions of both www.banipal.co.uk and www.banipaltrust.org.uk have gone online. The Banipal site has extra pages for News items, and easier to manage sections. You may need to check the urls if you have any pages as your favourites, as their endings may have slightly changed.
The new version of the Banipal Trust for Arab Literature site is now also online, and will shortly be updated with news of the 2009 judges. The winner of the 2009 will be announced at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
