The California Historical Society (CHS) and Heyday have established the California Historical Society Book Award for a book-length manuscript that makes an important contribution to scholarship and deepens public understanding of some aspect of California history. The prize carries a $5,000 advance and publication in both print and e-book format by CHS/Heyday, with an awards ceremony, ample promotion, and an author tour throughout the state. Authors with manuscripts in progress or finished manuscripts are welcome to apply.

The work must adhere to high scholarly standards, and must be lively and engaging to general readers as well. In addition to conventional works of historical scholarship, other genres will be considered such as biographies, collections of letters or essays, photographic or artistic studies, creative nonfiction, or other ways of informing the mind and engaging the imagination in an understanding of California’s past.

The winner will be announced September 15, 2013. Publication will be approximately one year after a fully completed manuscript and all graphics are accepted.
