The Stowe Prize recognizes a distinguished book of general adult fiction or nonfiction that illuminates a critical social justice issue in contemporary society in the United States. The book must be written by a U.S. author and have been published in the United States during the previous three calendar years. The book should apply informed inquiry, be accessible and engaging to a general audience, and promote empathy and understanding. Because Stowe’s writings challenged slavery and promoted women’s education, social issues impacted by racism and gender discrimination will be prioritized.
Deadline for submissions: Midnight, Sunday, September 27, 2020
Stowe Prize 2021 will be announced in March.
