Oneworld Publisher Juliet Mabey Receives OBE for Services to Publishing
13th December, 2021
All of us at Oneworld are proud and delighted that our co-founder, Juliet Mabey, has received an OBE for Services to Publishing in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. Juliet was awarded the OBE by Princess Anne at Windsor Casle in a ceremony that took place last week.
Juliet has enjoyed astonishing success during her time running Oneworld, a small Independent Publishing company that she started with her husband Novin Doostdar. As well as winning the Booker Prize two years running, and the Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2019, Juliet has also been an active campaigner for diversity within the industry which can be seen by the support she has given to writers from all parts of the world.
Juliet told The Bookseller: “It’s incredibly gratifying to realise that our efforts at Oneworld to build a truly global stable of authors with diverse voices and perspectives over the last three decades has been recognised in this way. But it’s important to remember that publishing is very much a team effort, and this honour goes also to Oneworld’s fantastic team and our brilliant authors.”
