AUTHORS

Each year, the awards committee of the Henry Ford Heritage Association presents two distinctive awards for books or journalism to deserving honorees who, in the committee's opinion, have best exemplified the ideals set down in the HFHA mission statement:

"To foster interest in the life and accomplishments of Henry Ford, and to preserve and interpret the landmarks associated with his life".

The HFHA Book Award and the HFHA Literary Award are presented at the annual HFHA - Henry Ford Birthday Celebration Dinner which takes place in July.

Henry Ford Heritage Association has the opportunity to present one book award to the newly published book we feel best embodies Henry Ford’s story. Candidate books can center on Henry Ford, his family, or his accomplishments. The award is presented at our annual dinner in July and the author is encouraged to be present and to offer the book for signing and sale. The author or publisher is permitted to use our logo and year of the award as part of their advertising and on the cover of the book. If you are interested in submitting a book to be considered for this award please download the HFHA – Book Award Application and follow the instructions.
