For the widespread of the Czech literature

The Czech Book Award


The jury is composed of seven people representing three professions related to books: academics, literary translators and booksellers. The eighth member is the previous year winner.

Academics provide the jury with a dimension combining the study of the literary qualities of the books, the depth and the long term.

Literary translators are the best placed to assess whether we can bring a book to other languages (and, incidentally, to other cultures) without diminishing its strength.

Being closer to the readers, booksellers anticipate the most of their expectations and needs.
