Julia Cherry Spruill Prize

The Julia Cherry Spruill Prize is awarded annually for the best book in southern women’s history, broadly construed. Only monographs with a copyright date of 2022 are eligible for the award in 2023. Entries must be written in English, but the competition is open to works published outside the U.S., and presses may submit as many eligible books as they choose.

To nominate a book for the Spruill Prize, please mail a copy of the publication to each committee member, postmarked no later than May 15, 2023.
