The Dayton Literary Peace Prize is an annual United States literary award "recognizing the power of the written word to promote peace" that was first awarded in 2006. [1] Awards are given for adult fiction and non-fiction books published at some point within the immediate past year that have led readers to a better understanding of other peoples, cultures, religions, and political views, with the winner in each category receiving a cash prize of $10,000. [1] The award is an offshoot of the Dayton Peace Prize, which grew out of the 1995 peace accords ending the Bosnian War. [2] In 2011, the former "Lifetime Achievement Award" was renamed the Richard C. Holbrooke Distinguished Achievement Award with a $10,000 honorarium.


In 2008, Martin Luther King Jr. biographer Taylor Branch joined Studs Terkel and Elie Wiesel as a recipient of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize's Lifetime Achievement Award, [3] which was presented to him by special guest Edwin C. Moses. [4] The 2008 ceremony was held in Dayton, Ohio, on September 28, 2008. [3] Nick Clooney, who hosted the ceremony in 2007, [5] again served as the evening's host in 2008 [6] and 2009. [7]

The 2009 ceremony was held in Dayton, Ohio, on November 8, 2009, [7] at which married authors and journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn received the Dayton Literary Peace Prize's 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award. [8]
