The First Horizon Award

Each year, the Eric Hoffer Award presents the First Horizon Award for superior work by debut authors (i.e the first published book of any type by the author). This is an additional distinction beneath the Eric Hoffer Award umbrella.

“The passionate pursuer has all the earmarks of a fugitive.”

-Eric Hoffer
