Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award
The NBCC welcomes nominations from members for the Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award. Named after the first president of the NBCC, the award is given annually to a person or institution---a writer, publisher, critic, or editor, among others---who has, over time, made significant contributions to book culture.
As you can tell from the list of recipients below, the award is truly ecumenical, seeking to recognize outstanding and longstanding work from any sector that affects a book and contributes to American arts and letters.
Please e-mail your nominations to David Biespiel at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must be a member of the NBCC to submit a name.
