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 to be submitted for the 2014 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.
