David Cohen, one of Britain’s most active cultural philanthropists and founder of the £40,000 (about $49,145) David Cohen Prize for Literature, died August 4. He was 89. The Bookseller reported that the award was created in 1992 when Cohen responded to a newspaper interview in which former Arts Council of Great Britain chair Lord Palumbo said the organization aspired to found a literary award bigger than the Booker Prize.
