Monique Layton’s book, Everyday Evil: Why Our World Is the Way It Is, is a finalist for the Montaigne Medal. Each year, the Eric Hoffer Award presents the Montaigne Medal to the most thought-provoking books published by academic and small independent presses in the USA and Canada. These are books that either illuminate, progress, or redirect thought, and the Medal is given in honour of the great French philosopher Michel de Montaigne. The winner will be announced April 15, 2021. T
This is an additional distinction beneath the Eric Hoffer Award umbrella, and these finalists are also considered for the Eric Hoffer Grand Prize. The shortlist for the Eric Hoffer Grand Prize will be announced May 3.
