The John Giorno Foundation is thrilled to announce that John Giorno’s memoir, Great Demon Kings, has just won a 2021 American Book Award. Award winners will be formally recognized on Sunday, September 19, 2021, from 2:00–4:00 p.m., online.
The American Book Awards were created to provide recognition for outstanding literary achievement from the entire spectrum of America’s diverse literary community. The purpose of the awards is to recognize literary excellence without limitations or restrictions. There are no categories, no nominees, and therefore no losers. The award winners range from well-known and established writers to under-recognized authors and first works. The Awards are not bestowed by an industry organization, but rather are a writers’ award given by other writers.
