Anisfield-Wolf Award-Winning Books at the Michael Schwartz Library

This week is the The Cleveland Foundation's sixth annual Cleveland Book Week, showcasing present and past Anisfield-Wolf Book Award (AWBA) winners over the 86-year history of the award. Established in 1935 by Cleveland poet and philanthropist Edith Anisfield Wolf, these awards recognize books that have made important contributions to our understanding of racism and human diversity. The week’s far-ranging programs will all have virtual options and nearly all are free to the community.

We have a good selection of Anisfield-Wolf Award winners right here at the Michael Schwarz Library, thanks in part to a 2020 Celebrating Ohio Book Awards & Authors (COBAA) grant from the State Library of Ohio, which we used to purchase 28 Anisfield-Wolf Book Award winners not previously in our collection.  A few of the additions to our collection made possible by this grant are listed below, but some 86 titles by a wide variety of authors are available for you to use and enjoy.  Here's a representative sampling, followed by a complete list of our newer titles:
