2022 Memoir Book Prize Winners

Memoir Prize for Books

Memoir Magazine has announced the 2022 Winners of the Memoir Book Prize:

First Place
The View From Breast Pocket Mountain by Karen Hill Anton

Second Place
Animal Bodies: On Death, Desire, and Other Difficulties by Suzanne Roberts

Third Place
Finding the Right Words: A Story of Literature, Grief, and the Brain by Cindy Weinstein and Bruce L. Miller

They also eliminated the ‘honorable mention’ category this year and instead created 23 specific categories with which to recognize entrants. Four of those selected are currently unpublished manuscripts, providing authors with an avenue for (hopefully) finding a publishing home for their works.

Visit the Memoir Magazine website for the full list of honorees and their books.
