О премии

Премия Киркус - национальная награда за лучшее произведение, учрежденная к 80-летнему юбилею создания американского журнала "Киркус. Отзывы" (Kirkus Reviews).

В 1932 году американка Вирджиния Киркус (1893-1980) основала собственную службу книжного обозрения. Служба получала гранки книг, готовящихся к публикации, и рецензировала их. С начала существования службы поступало около 20 гранок, почти 80 лет спустя служба уже получала сотни книг в неделю и рецензировала около 100.
В 1933 году Вирджинией Киркус был основан журнал "Киркус. Отзывы". Дважды в месяц он публикует информацию о готовящихся к публикациям книгах, способствуя этим развитию издательской индустрии и повышению читательского интереса. За год публикуется примерно о 7 000 произведениях.

Премия Киркуса была учреждена журналом "Киркус. Отзывы" в 2014 году и является одной из самых богатых литературных премий в мире. Каждый лауреат получает $ 50 000.

Премия вручается в трех номинациях:
- художественная книга (Kirkus Prize for Fiction)
- документальная книга (Kirkus Prize for Nonfiction)
- книга для детей и юношества (Kirkus Prize for Young Readers' Literature).

Штаб-квартира журнала находится в Нью-Йорке.

Raven Leilani 3.4
Luster sees a young black woman figuring her way into life as an artist and into love in this darkly comic novel. She meets Eric, a digital archivist with a family in New Jersey, including an autopsist wife who has agreed to an open marriage. In this world of contemporary sexual manners and racial politics, Edie finds herself unemployed and living with Eric. She becomes hesitant friend to his wife and a de facto role model to his adopted daughter. Edie is the only black woman young Akila may know.

Brave, clear-eyed, and passionate, Stakes Is High is the book we need to guide us past crisis mode and through an uncertain future.

The events of the past decade have forced us to reckon with who we are and who we want to be. We have been invested in a set of beliefs about our American identity: our exceptionalism, the inevitable rightness of our path, the promise that hard work and determination will carry us to freedom. But in Stakes Is High, Mychal Denzel Smith confronts the shortcomings of these stories -- and with the American Dream itself -- and calls on us to live up to the principles we profess but fail to realize.

In a series of incisive essays, Smith exposes the stark contradictions at the heart of American life, holding all of us, individually and as a nation, to account. We've gotten used to looking away, but the fissures and casual violence of institutional oppression are ever-present.

There is a future that is not as grim as our past. In this profound work, Smith helps us envision it with care, honesty, and imagination.

I am
a nonstop ball of energy.
Powerful and full of light.
I am a go-getter. A difference maker. A leader.

The confident Black narrator of this book is proud of everything that makes him who he is. He's got big plans, and no doubt he'll see them through--as he's creative, adventurous, smart, funny, and a good friend. Sometimes he falls, but he always gets back up. And other times he's afraid, because he's so often misunderstood and called what he is not. So slow down and really look and listen, when somebody tells you--and shows you--who they are. There are superheroes in our midst!
