Biennial Indiana Authors Awards announcements coming in August

The Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards will announce the books shortlisted for the 2022 honors in early August, followed by winner announcements in late August.

Awarded every two years, the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards celebrate the best books by Hoosier writers in nine categories. Lifetime Achievement and Literary Champion awards also will be announced in late August.

“Based on early feedback from our judging panels, the depth and breadth of Hoosier literary talent continues to grow,” said Keira Amstutz, Indiana Humanities president and CEO. “There’s a lot of anticipation to see the shortlists.”

The Indiana Authors Awards celebrate Indiana writers, shine a light on the Hoosier state’s literary community and deepen connections between Indiana writers and readers.
