More Love for NYC Books

Sunday, May 3, 2020

We're not holding our annual New York City Book Awards reception in May as originally planned - but the month is still full of love for New York City books and our 2019 winners.

Cynthia Brenwall, The Central Park: Original Designs for New York’s Greatest Treasure (Harry N. Abrams)

Matthew Goodman, The City Game: Triumph, Scandal, and a Legendary Basketball Team (Ballantine Books)

Willie Perdomo, The Crazy Bunch (Penguin Books)

Hugh Ryan, When Brooklyn Was Queer: A History (St. Martin’s Press)

The Hornblower Award for a First Book: Claire Jimenez, Staten Island Stories (Johns Hopkins University Press)

The standard information about the awards for this year and past years can be found here.

The 2019-2020 New York City Book Awards are generously underwritten by Ellen M. Iseman.
