The Italian American Studies Association announces the IASA Book Award offered even numbered years for a scholarly work and odd numbered years for a creative work. The 2023 award will be presented at the annual conference this year in Arkansas. The award of $500 will be presented to an outstanding Creative Writing contribution to the field of Italian American Studies published between January 1, 2022 and May 1, 2023. Works nominated must be authored monographs and must be primarily in English. (Edited collections are not eligible.)
Nominations may be made by a publisher or a member in good standing of the Association. E-books are preferred but hard copies will be accepted in cases where the publishers do not have e-books. Please email electronic copy to Lisa Paolucci at email@example.com by July 15, 2023. All electronic copies will be protected and not disseminated to anyone outside the book awards committee. If an e-version is not available please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a private mailing address.
There is no entry fee. Copies, however, will not be returned. The author and work selected for the 2023 award will be announced by mid-October.
