Goldberg Prize for Jewish Fiction Awarded to Irina Reyn

Irina Reyn (Assistant Professor, Fiction) was recently named winner of the Goldberg Prize for Jewish Fiction for her 2008 novel, What Happened to Anna K. 

From the Foundation for Jewish Culture website:

Established in 1999 and supported through a generous grant from the Samuel Goldberg & Sons Foundation, the Goldberg Prize for Jewish Fiction by Emerging Writers is among the very first of its kind to highlight new works by contemporary writers exploring Jewish themes.

The prize spotlights promising new talent, and is awarded to an American fiction writer for a first or second full-length work that was published in the previous calendar year. Submissions must be made by the publisher.

The award includes a prize of $2,500, as well as a one-week residency at Ledig House International Writers Colony in New York’s Hudson Valley.
