Book Prize committee begins reviewing nominations
March 3, 2014
Every year in the fall, Historic New England awards its Book Prize to a monograph or exhibition catalogue that advances the understanding of the architecture, landscape, and material culture of New England and the United States from the seventeenth century to the present. This includes works in the decorative arts, archaeology, historic preservation, and history of photography. To qualify, works need not deal exclusively with New England but must make a significant contribution to the understanding of New England and its relation to the wider world. Two Honor Books are also recognized each year.
The committee responsible for selecting the prize winner and the honor books, which is made up of Historic New England members and staff, has just begun discussing candidates for the 2014 prize. If you would like to suggest a title for consideration by the Book Prize committee, please send an e-mail to Lorna Condon at LCondon@HistoricNewEngland.org indicating the name of the author, title, and publisher.
Please note that books being considered for the 2014 prize must have been published in 2013.
