About the Session

Proceeds from the sale of lots 33 to 54 in this session will benefit The Wilbur & Niso Smith Foundation.

“The Wilbur and Niso Smith Foundation was created to allow us to share our love of adventure writing with the world. Over the years, we have travelled together through Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, and in every country and culture we have found storytellers weaving tales of adventure. The foundation’s aim is to open a space for these writers, young and old, from across the globe, to shine. The first stage of our mission will be to award an annual prize for adventure writing – the Wilbur Smith Adventure Writing Prize. The next stage will be to reach out to writers and readers across the world, bringing the spirit of adventure into their lives and inspiring them to undertake their own journeys of discovery. More than anything we want the Wilbur and Niso Smith Foundation to be an organisation that uplifts, inspires and educates.”
