The Dayton Literary Peace Prize Foundation is pleased to announce the winner for the 2016 Dayton
Literary Peace Prize in fiction and nonfiction.
"This year's winners remind us that the effects of war reverberate many years and often many generations after treaties
are signed," said Sharon Rab, founder and co-chair of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize Foundation. "Together, these stories
by Viet Thanh Nguyen and Susan Southard offer cautionary tales but also guideposts to lead us toward a greater understanding
of those who are originally seen as enemies."

Join us on Friday, November 18, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at the Victoria Theatre in downtown Dayton
for an evening for justice and peace. Hear stories told by Dayton Literary Peace Prize authors
of justice delayed, justice denied, justice won. The program focuses on the life of Thurgood
Marshall and the timeless significance of his work.
Gilbert King, a Dayton Literary Peace Prize recipient and Pulitzer Prize winning author, and
Wil Haygood a Dayton Literary Peace Prize finalist, will give keynote addresses. They will
be joined in a panel discussion by Professor Mark Godsey, Ricky Jackson, Jeff Hobbs, and
