Members of the Signed First Editions Club receive a signed first edition each month of a new work of fiction by an emerging author who shows exceptional talent and promise. Many of our selected authors have gone on to win literary acclaim, including Paul Harding, whose novel Tinkers won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction! 

In 2013, our February 2012 selection The Orphan Masters Son by Adam Johnson was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. Our June 2012 pick, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain won the National Book Critics Circle award.

In 2012, two of our previous First Editions Club authors, Junot Diaz (The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao) and Dinaw Mengestu (The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears), received MacArthur “Genius” Grants; the National Book Foundation included two of our authors – Haley Tanner (Vaclav & Lena) and Jennifer duBois (A Partial History of Lost Causes) – in their “5 Under 35” list of promising young authors. Our June 2012 selection, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain, was a finalist for the National Book Award. 

We can’t promise an award winner every time, but we can promise you a rewarding reading experience. One of our long time members tells us  “The First Edition Club finds books I would never discover on my own. Thanks to the club, I’m enjoying reading more than ever before.”
