by Phil Klay

Chautauqua Institution is delighted to announce Redeployment (The Penguin Press) by Phil Klay as the 2015 winner of The Chautauqua Prize.

As author of the winning book, Klay receives $7,500 and all travel and expenses for himself and his wife for a one-week summer residency at CHQ. He will host a public reading and a book signing on Saturday, July 25, at the Hall of Philosophy.

While his Week Four residency will be the first time Klay visits CHQ, he said he has fond memories of childhood trips to Lakeside Chautauqua, an Ohio community that is part of the Chautauqua Trail.

“I’m thrilled to come to the original CHQ,” Klay said. “I’m incredibly honored by this, and looking forward to meeting folks there.”


A July 25 public reading of the Chautauqua Prize winner Redeployment by Phil Klay will be held at 1:30 in the Hall of Philosophy.
