National Book Critics Circle Award – Biography

Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned.

The National Book Critics Circle (NBCC), founded in 1974, consists of nearly 600 active book critics, authors, literary bloggers, book publishing personnel, and student members. The NBCC Awards honour the best literature published in the United States in a number of categories.

Prior to 2005, there existed a single award for Biography / Autobiography. In 2005 it was replaced by two awards: the Biography Award and the Autobiography / Memoir Award.
