The second annual Story Prize ceremony, held at the New School’s Tishman Auditorium in late January, began like most literary events in New York City—with much chattering among publishing folk, rising in volume until the lights went down and a hush descended on the room.

The winner of the first annual prize was Edwidge Danticat for The Dew Breaker (Knopf, 2004).
