California Historical Society Accepting Proposals for 2014 Book Award
The California Historical Society is accepting nominations for the 2014 California Historical Society Book Award.
According to today's Philanthropy News Digest, the Society will award a cash prize of $5,000
to a book-length manuscript that makes an important contribution to California historical scholarship and adheres to high scholarly standards while being lively and engaging to general readers. In addition to conventional works of historical scholarship, other works eligible for consideration include biographies, collections of letters or essays, photographic or artistic studies, creative nonfiction, and other ways of informing the mind and engaging the imagination in an understanding of California’s past.
The winning manuscript will be published in both print and e-book format, and the society will pay for an awards ceremony, promotion, and an author’s tour.
Eligibility and application guidelines are available at the California Historical Society Website.
