|Times are changing.|
According to Publishing Perspectives Editor-in-Chief Porter Anderson, the Man Prize has found a new anchor sponsor. The California-based Crankstart has stepped in as sponsor. Panzer told you in January about the Man Group withdrawing as a sponsor of the Man Booker Prize. Crankstart will not put their name on the prize as the Man Group did. Anticipating a possible little brouhaha about an American (USA) anchor sponsor, the Booker Prize Foundation issued several statements about Crankstart Foundation's charitable contributions to various colleges, universities and programs. Links to other posts for information about the Booker Prize are included in the post.
Panzer says, "This little kitty was wondering who would step in to replace the Man Group and it didn't take long before Crankstart did."
