The finalists are Sindya Bhanoo, author of the story collection Seeking Fortune Elsewhere, Daphne Palasi Andreades, author of the novel Brown Girls, and Aamina Ahmad, author of the novel The Return of Faraz Ali.

The New American Voices Award was created in 2018 by Fall for the Book and the Institute for Immigration Research to recognize recently published works that illuminate the complexity of the human experience as told by immigrants, whose work is historically underrepresented in writing and publishing. Sponsored by the Institute for Immigration Research.
This event is part of the Fall for the Book Festival, which runs from October 12-15. Visit fallforthebook.org/schedule to view the whole schedule.
