The Nero Award

The Nero Award

The Nero Award was first presented in 1979 by the Wolfe Pack. An orginization of devoted fans of Rex Stout, like our founder Bill Farley (Bill and his wife are charter members of The Wolfe Pack, and one year helped select the Nero winners!). The Nero is awarded to the book which best represents the spirit of the Nero Wolfe novels. The award is presented during the Black Orchid Banquet in New York on the first Saturday in December.
