Story Prize to be announced tonight in NYC

The Story Prize will be returning to the New School’s Tishman Auditorium on Wednesday, February 28, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. for our third annual awards event.

The three authors chosen as Story Prize finalists will read brief selections from their books and then sit down with Larry Dark, the Director of The Story Prize, to discuss their work onstage. The readings will provide the audience with a taste of the nominated books, while the onstage interviews will provide insight into the creative process of the finalists. The evening will culminate with the announcement of the winner and presentation of the $20,000 award and the engraved silver bowl given to the winner of The Story Prize. The runners-up will receive $5,000 each.
