The Jewish Book Council has announced the five finalists for the Sami Rohr Prize, which will carry a $100,000 top prize. The prize, inaugurated in 2006, is the largest in the Jewish literary world; it will go to an emerging fiction writer this year, as the prize alternates yearly between fiction and non-fiction works that stimulate an interest in Jewish themes. The finalists this year are Elisa Albert for The Book of Dahlia; Sana Krasikov for One More Year; Anne Landsman for The Rowing Lesson; Dalia Sofer for The Septembers of Shiraz; and Anya Ulinich for Petropolis. The winner will be announced in the spring, as will the Choice Award winner, who will receive $25,000. Previous winners include Lucette Lagnado and Tamar Yellin.
