Announcement of the Windham Campbell Literature Prizes
Join us at the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 7 as Yale University President Peter Salovey announces the winners of the 2014 Windham Campbell Literature Prizes. Can't make it? Watch the announcement live at windhamcampbell.org.
The Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell Literature Prizes are global English-language awards that call attention to literary achievement and provide writers with the opportunity to focus on their work independent of financial concerns. Prizewinners in three categories – nonfiction, fiction, and drama – receive an unrestricted grant of $150,000 to support their work. Up to nine prizes are awarded each year.
The exhibition gallery is closed while the library's building is under renovation.
