Israel’s Education Ministry announced that celebrated author, David Grossman, has been awarded the Israel Prize—the country’s highest literary accolade—for this year.


The prize committee, led by Prof. Avner Holtzman, noted that “since the early ’80s, Grossman has taken center stage in the Israeli culture scene. He is one of the most profound, moving and influential voices in our literature.”


David Grossman was born in Jerusalem and is the author of numerous works of fiction, nonfiction, and children’s literature. His writing has appeared in The New Yorker and has been translated into more than forty languages.
