Finalists for the 2022 Kirkus Prizes
The Kirkus Prize was created to celebrate nearly 90 years of discerning, thoughtful criticism that Kirkus Reviews has contributed to both the publishing industry and readers at large. Books that earn the Kirkus star with publication dates between Nov. 1, 2021 and Oct. 31, 2022 are automatically nominated for the 2022 Kirkus Prize, and a prize of $50,000 is bestowed annually to authors of fiction, nonfiction and young readers’ literature. The 2022 prizes will be presented in a hybrid ceremony at the Central Library in Austin, Texas, on Thursday, Oct. 27, 2022. Learn more at the Kirkus website
