California Historical Society
The Society is accepting nominations from authors for the 2015 California Historical Society Book Award, which honors a book-length manuscript that deepens public understanding of some aspect of California history. The $5,000 prize will be awarded to the author(s) of a 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, judges will consider other genres including 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 by Heyday in both print and e-book form. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
