Congratulations to this year's nominees for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize!

The award is the only international one given out in the United States; it honors "writers whose work uses the power of literature to foster peace, social justice, and global understanding."

We'll find out who won the prize (and its $10,000 purse) on September 27.

Runners-up will receive $5,000.

Earlier this summer, the prize announced that Wil Haygood, author of The Butler, would receive the Ambassador Richard C. Holbrooke Distinguished Achievement Award in a separate ceremony.
