Created in 1959 by Edgard Cavalheiro, then the president of CBL (Câmara Brasileira do Livro), the Prêmio Jabuti (Jabuti Prize) is the most important book award in Brazil.

The winners of the 27 categories that composed the 58th  edition of the Prize this year were officially announced in a ceremony organized by the CBL which took place at Auditório Ibirapuera on Thursday, Nov 24.

While the prize for best fiction was awarded to A Resistência by Julián Fuks (published by Companhia das Letras), the prize for best non-fictional work was shared by the books Mário de Andrade: Eu Sou Trezentos: Vida e Obra by Eduardo Jardim (published by Edições de Janeiro) and Dicionário da História Social do Samba by Nei Lopes and Luiz Antonio Simas (published by Civilização Brasileira).

The Reader's Choice

This year, for the first time, readers could participate in the voting process for a specific segment called The Reader’s Choice (a partnership between CBL and Amazon.com.br). There were three prizes in this category: best novel; best short story/crônica; and best poetry. The respective winners were: Ainda Estou Aqui by Marcelo Rubens Paiva (published by Alfaguara); Amora by Natália Borges Polesso; and Vertigens by Wilson Alves Bezerra (published by Iluminuras).
