Lukas Prize Project Awards Announced

BlobServer.jpgThe annual Lukas Prize Project Awards were announced recently, as Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism and the Nieman Foundation at Harvard gave three literary nonfiction authors a boost.

The $10,000 J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize went to Jane Mayer for “The Dark Side;” the $10,000 Mark Lynton History Prize was awarded to Timothy Brook for “Vermeer’s Hat;” and finally, the $30,000 J. Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award went to Judy Pasternak for her work on the forthcoming title, “Yellow Dirt: The Betrayal of the Navajos.”

From the release: “Established in 1998, the prizes recognize excellence in nonfiction writing that exemplifies the literary grace and commitment to serious research and social concern that characterized the distinguished work of the awards’ Pulitzer Prize-winning namesake J. Anthony Lukas, who died in 1997.” (Via NY Times)
