Sandra Smith accepts the PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize for her translation from the French of Suite Française (Knopf) by Irène Némirovsky at the 2007 Literary Awards Ceremony. The award goes to book-length translations from any language into English; it was established in 1963 by the Book-of-the-Month Club in recognition of the art of the literary translator—the first American award to do so. Finalists included Carol Brown Janeway for her translation from the German of Measuring the World by Daniel Kehlmann (Pantheon) and Shaun Whiteside for his translation from the Italian of 54 by Wu Ming (Harcourt).
