Albertine Prize 2020 Nominees

Published on October 15, 2020
The Albertine Prize, presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and supported by Van Cleef & Arpels, recognizes American readers’ favorite French-language fiction title that has been translated into English and distributed in the US within the preceding calendar year.

It aims to highlight works by authors from the many countries where French is spoken, reminding us that languages and literature transcend borders.

Discover this year’s five nominated books, which address the most pressing issues of our uncertain times with distinctive literary styles, written by a diverse roster of authors who show the breadth of the French and Francophone contemporary scene.

We invite you to vote for your favorite Albertine Prize shortlisted book before November 25!

Join us on December 9th during a live ceremony for the Albertine Prize award ceremony as we reveal the 2020 winner.

The Albertine Prize is presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and supported by Van Cleef & Arpels. Media Partner: Literary Hub.
