We're pleased to announce that Elizabeth Strout's Anything Is Possible (Random House) is the winner of The Story Prize for books published in 2017. The other finalists this year were authors Daniel Alarcón for The King Is Always Above the People (Riverhead Books) and Ottessa Moshfegh for Homesick for Another World (Penguin Press). At the event at The New School, all three finalists read from and discussed their work on-stage. Strout received $20,000 and an engraved silver bowl. As runners-up, Alarcón and Moshfegh each received $5,000.

Congratulations to Elizabeth Strout and Random House!

In the days and weeks to come, we'll post the judges' citations for the three books, photos from the event and after party, and a link to the video.
