Los Angeles Times Book Prize Winners

Since 1980, the Los Angeles Times has awarded a set of annual book prizes. The Prizes currently have eleven single-title categories: biography, current interest, fiction, graphic novel/comics, first fiction (the Art Seidenbaum Award added in 1991), history, mystery/thriller (category added in 2000), poetry, science and technology (category added in 1989), autobiographical prose (the Christopher Isherwood Prize added for 2016) and young adult fiction (category added in 1998). In addition, the Robert Kirsch Award is presented annually to a living author with a substantial connection to the American West, whose contribution to American letters deserves special recognition. And the Innovators Award recognizes the people and institutions that bring books, publishing, journalism, ideas and storytelling into the future.

The Book Prize program was founded by the late Art Seidenbaum, a Los Angeles Times book editor from 1978 to 1985; an award named after him was added a year after his death in 1990. The Robert Kirsch Award is named after the longtime Times book critic who died in 1980. Works are eligible during the year of their first US publication in English, though English does not have to be the original language of the work. The author of each winning book and the Kirsch Award recipient receives a citation and $1,000. The prizes are presented the day before the annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books.
