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 2014 are eligible for the 2015 Thurber Prize.
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.
