Oakland CA--The Before Columbus Foundation announces the Winners of the Twenty-First Annual AMERICAN BOOK AWARDS (see enclosed list of winners). The 2000 American Book Award winners will be formally recognized during the Book Expo America Convention in Chicago, Illinois, with the Ceremonies and Reception being held on Saturday, June 3rd, from 6:30-8:00 P.M., at the Continental Room at the Chicago Athletic Association in Chicago, 12 South Michigan Blvd (between Madison and Monroe).
The American Book Awards were created to provide recognition for outstanding literary achievement from the entire spectrum of America's diverse literary community. The purpose of the awards is to recognize literary excellence without limitations or restrictions. There are no categories, no nominees, and therefore no losers. The award winners range from well-known and established writers to under-recognized authors and first works. Many previous winners have later gone on to win other awards, ranging from regional prizes to the Nobel Prize. There are no quotas for diversity, the winners list simply reflects it as a natural process. The Before Columbus Foundation views American culture as inclusive and has always considered the term "multicultural" to be not a description of various categories, groups, or "special interests," but rather as the definition of all of American literature. The Awards are not bestowed by an industry organization, but rather are a writers' award given by other writers. (The Before Columbus Foundation is an independent non-profit organization.)
