Patricia Engel and Robert Olen Butler are Dayton Peace Prize Finalists

The Dayton Literary Peace Prize Foundation is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2017 Dayton Literary Peace Prize in fiction and nonfiction.

“This year’s finalists show us people navigating their way through a complex range of differences, whether it be nationality, race, class, or gender,” said Sharon Rab, co-chair of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize Foundation. “Through these narratives, we discover either valuable tools for reconciling differences – or the dire consequences for all involved of choosing to remain in conflict.”
