2020 ERIC HOFFER BOOK AWARDS
The Hoffer-honored books are from small, academic, and micro presses, including self-published offerings. (No unpublished manuscripts, please.) Throughout the centuries, writers such as Emily Dickinson, James Joyce, Walt Whitman, and Virginia Woolf have taken the path of self-publishing rather than have their ideas forced into a corporate or sociopolitical mold. Today, small and academic presses struggle in this same environment. The Hoffer award will continue to be a platform for and the champion of the independent voice. Winners of the Hoffer are given prizes, honors, and worldwide media exposure, as well as being covered in the US Review of Books. Nominated books are judged by independent panels within eighteen all-inclusive categories. The annual Grand Prize winner is awarded a $2,500 cash prize. Each category is assigned a winner, runner-up, and multiple honorable mentions, with recognition given to the best academic, small, micro, and self-published presses. The Montaigne Medal is awarded to the most thought-provoking books, and the da Vinci Eye honors exceptional cover art. The First Horizon Award is given to the best first-time authors. Each year, the Eric Hoffer Award results are publicly announced in the spring, and every nominee is notified via the contact email on their registration form.
