Atwood Wins Peace Prize

Margaret Atwood will receive the 25,000 2017 Peace Prize from the Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels (German Publishers and Booksellers Association). First awarded in 1950, the prize is given to “individuals whose literary, artistic or academic work has served to advance the cause of peace.” The administrative board says, “Atwood has demonstrated a keen political intuition and a deeply perceptive ability to detect dangerous and underlying developments and tendencies.”

The prize was announced on June 13, 2017 during the Berlin Book Days and will be presented at a ceremony at the Frankfurt Book Fair on October 15, 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany.
