Eligible are single-authored monographs that focus on any theme related to Italian Studies in English or Italian. In order to qualify in the competition, the first edition/printing of the books must have occurred within two years prior to the competition year (i.e. the 2023 competition is for books published from 2022-2023).

If an author chooses to enter their book into the First Book competition, they are kindly requested to include a CV with complete list of publications. Multi-authored works, translations, textbooks, creative writings, and edited volumes will not be considered.
