About the event
Presented by the Cleveland Foundation, The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards is the only juried American book prize focusing on works that address racism and diversity. The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards recognize books that have made important contributions to our understanding of racism and human diversity. For 86 years, the distinguished books earning Anisfield-Wolf prizes have opened and challenged our minds. Cleveland poet and philanthropist Edith Anisfield Wolf established the book awards in 1935, in honor of her father, John Anisfield, and husband, Eugene Wolf, to reflect her family’s passion for social justice.
Chagrin Arts is pleased to support the Awards in this free virtual program highlighting the 2022 winners. Join us for this to learn more and be entered to win tickets to this year's award ceremony to be held Thursday September September 15 at 6 pm in the Maltz Performing Arts Center, hosted by jury chair Hentry Louis Gates Jr.
