Thurber Prize for American Humor
The Thurber Prize for American Humor is the only recognition of the art of humor writing in the United States. A panel of national judges selects the three finalists from a selection of seven or eight semi-finalists. Books and eBooks published in 2013 are eligible for the 2014 Thurber Prize. Information about the 2015 Thurber Prize will be available in January 2015.
Each year, the winner is announced in New York City. The winner of the prize receives $5,000, a commemorative plaque, and is invited to Thurber House in Columbus, Ohio as a featured guest at a special event.
