Brooklyn Public Library Announces Eagles Literary Prize Winners
Inaugural Brooklyn Eagles Literary Prizes went to author and journalist DW Gibson and debut novelist Atticus Lish on Saturday, October 24. The authors accepted their awards at the third annual Brooklyn Classic, the premiere annual fundraiser of the Brooklyn Eagles, a community of young professionals who volunteer their time and raise funds for Brooklyn Public Library.
The award was created by the Brooklyn Eagles to celebrate Brooklyn's literary culture with input from bookstores, librarians and artists. BPL staff selected three fiction and three nonfiction works from a longlist of nominees submitted by borough bookstores and library professionals.
