Award description

The American Book Award was established in 1978 by the Before Columbus Foundation to "honor excellence in American literature without restriction or bias with regard to race, sex, creed, cultural origin, size of press or ad budget, or even genre." There are no categories, ranks, or restrictions, and winners are selected by a panel of writers, editors, and publishers representing the diversity of American literary culture. The Award also periodically honors authors through Lifetime Achievement Awards. (Award Website)
