David Maraniss, Rebecca Solnit and John Bowe received the 2004 J. Anthony Lukas Prize Project Awards at a ceremony held on May 4th at the Nieman Foundation. During that event, Nicholas Lemann, dean of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, moderated a panel discussion with the award recipients. The prizes acknowledge works of excellence in nonfiction writing that exemplify the literary grace, commitment to serious research, and social concern that characterized the distinguished work of the awards' Pulitzer Prize-winning namesake J. Anthony Lukas. The winners were chosen from 286 submissions, the largest in the history of the awards. Maraniss received the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize for his book, They Marched Into Sunlight: War and Peace, Vietnam and America, October 1967. He is associate editor at The Washington Post and also the author of When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi, and First in His Class: A Biography of Bill Clinton. Solnit, writer and activist whose work focuses on issues of time, place, politics, and process, won the Mark Lynton History Prize for her book River of Shadows: Eadweard Muyridge and the Technological Wild West. Bowe, a freelance journalist, co-editor of the book Gig: Americans Talk About Their Jobs, is the recipient of the J. Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award for Slavery Inc.
