The Dayton Peace Accords ended the war in Bosnia War in 1995 and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize was created as a response 11 years later.  It's the only international literary peace prize in the United States and honors authors from around the world for fiction, non-fiction and lifetime achievement.

In this special hour-long presentation of speeches from Dayton Literary Peace Prize award ceremony, held on November 3, 2013 at the Schuster Center in Dayton, Ohio, you'll hear award-winner authors Adam Johnson, Andrew Soloman and Wendell Berry talk about writing and peace.
