Do you follow the International Dublin Literary Awards? Here’s why you should:
- Public libraries around the world nominate books for the award, and you love public libraries.
- A healthy mix of U.S. and international novels make both the longlist and the shortlist, and you’ve been looking for suggestions for some of the best international fiction.
- It’s one of the richest literary prizes, with 100,000 euros (approximately $112,000) going to the winner, and you like it when great writing is rewarded.
- One of this year’s 10 finalists was nominated by your own library (that’s us! Seattle Public Library!).
