Sponsored by the Department of English, the Joe A. Callaway prize is awarded every other year for the best book on drama or theatre published during the previous two years. The award honors the namesake, Joe A. Callaway, who dedicated more than 50 years to the theatre as an actor, director, lecturer, and critic. A panel of judges comprised of three professors in the fields of drama and theatre choose the winning book and grant the author a $9000 prize.
To nominate a book for the 2018 Prize, please send three (3) copies of the book, no later than January 31, 2018, to:
