About the Innovations in Reading Prize:

Each year the National Book Foundation awards the Innovations in Reading Prize to an individual or organization that inspires readers and engages new audiences with literature.

This year, for the first time in Innovations history, we awarded one $10,000 prize to an organization whose work is VITAL, demonstrating vision, ingenuity, transformation, achievement & leadership. The $10,000 Winner of the 2015 Innovations in Reading Prize is Reach Incorporated, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit that hires struggling teen readers as reading tutors for elementary school students. This year’s Honorable Mentions are the African Poetry Book Fund, Call Me Ishmael, Lambda Literary, and Motionpoems.
