The Living New Deal invites submissions for the First Annual New Deal Book Award.  

This award has been established to recognize and encourage non-fiction works about the history of the United States in the New Deal era, 1932-1942, or inclusive of a substantial portion of that remarkable decade between the nadir of the Great Depression and US entry into World War II. 

Submissions for the award must have a 2021 imprint and be nominated by a publisher or colleague.  Hard copy books or locked PDFs should be submitted no later than November 15, 2021.

The winner will be announced in Spring 2022 with a cash prize of $1,000. Presentation of the award will take place during the Roosevelt Reading Festival at the FDR Library at Hyde Park NY in Summer 2022, to which the five finalists will be invited. 

For submission details please find information at the Living New Deal website.
