The Bellwether Prize, which was established in 2000 by Barbara Kingsolver and is funded entirely by her, was created to promote fiction that addresses issues of social justice and the impact of culture and politics on human relationships. Awards are granted biennially to the author of a previously unpublished novel of high literary caliber that exemplifies the prize’s founding principles.
