New England Society Book Award

Susan Danly and Libby Bischof will be honored at an award luncheon for  the category of Art & Photography for their work, Maine Moderns: Art in Seguinland, 1900-1940  (Yale University Press). Their book explores Maine's important place in the history of modern art.

The New England Society (NES) celebrates the New England spirit and heritage through its philanthropic outreach, social events and cultural activities. One of its signature programs is the annual New England Society Book Awards, which recognize books of merit that honor New England and its culture.

The New England Society Book Awards are designed to recognize books that honor New England culture and to help expand the audience for these books. The awards are presented by the New England Society in the City of New York (NES), one of the oldest social, charitable and cultural organizations in the United States. To qualify for consideration, nominated titles must be about New England or set in New England.

The New England Society Book Awards are presented annually to the authors of books published the previous year. Books are nominated by the publishers and there are three categories for nominations: Fiction, Non-Fiction and Art & Photography. The NES Book Awards Committee oversees the selection process. Awards are announced in March and an Awards Luncheon is held in April. Award recipients receive a certificate and an award seal that can be placed or printed on the book, and used in all publicity materials.
