The Arab American Book Awards is a literary program created to honor books written by and about Arab Americans. The program generates greater awareness of Arab American scholarship and writing through an annual award competition and educational outreach.

Winners and honorable mentions may be presented annually in these categories: Adult Non-Fiction – Scholarly/Academic (The Evelyn Shakir Non-Fiction Award), Adult Non-Fiction – Memoir/Creative, Adult Fiction, Poetry (The George Ellenbogen Poetry Award), and Children/Young Adult, Fiction or Non-Fiction.
