Langston Hughes Awards

Celebrate Langston Hughes’ birthday, with a reading reception for Langston Hughes Award winners, complete with birthday cake and live music at the Lawrence Arts Center!
Co-sponsored by the Raven Book Store and the Lawrence Arts Center, the award honors the work of Hughes who spent his childhood in Lawrence, Kansas. Each year, the award is given to two writers to encourage and support Douglas County, Kansas, residents who continue in Hughes’ tradition of portraying life experience through poetry and prose.
