2018 Leonard Prize sign-up form
This is the sixth year of the NBCC's John Leonard Prize, awarded to an outstanding first book in any genre and selected by the general membership. To be eligible, a book must have been published in the United States in 2018, and it must be the author's first book. (A first novel by author who has already published a book of short stories or a memoir, for example, would NOT be eligible.) Last year, Carmen Maria Machado's "Her Body and Other Parties" received the prize.

We invite members to join an all-volunteer committee of Leonard readers who commit to read the entire slate of Leonard finalists (probably 5-7 books) and vote for the winner, to be announced in January. The Leonard committee is open to any NBCC member.
