The Brown University Book Award is awarded to an outstanding high school or preparatory school junior who best combines academic excellence with clarity in written and spoken expression.

This year (2017-2018), the Brown University Book Award is It's All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World's Family Tree by A. J. Jacobs '90. New York Times bestselling author of The Know-It-All and The Year of Living Biblically, A.J. Jacobs undergoes a heartfelt, hilarious quest to understand what constitutes family—where it begins and how far it goes—and attempts to untangle the true meaning of the “Family of Humankind.”

“In his latest adventure book, author and experimentalist A.J. Jacobs enthusiastically shares in the human quest for self-knowledge that drives so many of us around the world to search for – and find – our roots. The astonishing discoveries he makes not only reveal the compelling possibilities of genealogical and genetic research; they remind us of the common bonds that unite us as a single global family. As Jacobs’s (however distant) cousin, I admit I may be biased in singing his praises, but as It’s All Relative proves, who isn’t?”—Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

“Whimsical but also full of solid journalism and eye-opening revelations about the history of humanity, the book is a real treat.”Booklist, Starred Review
