I am SO excited to announce that BookSpeak! Poems About Books (Clarion, 2011) was awarded a Eureka Gold Medal for excellence in nonfiction. This award from the California Reading Association is for every book that is not expressly fiction. Yay!
And Dare to Dream…Change the World (Kane Miller, 2012, edited by Jill Corcoran), a beautiful, inspirational anthology of poems about people who have changed the world, received a Silver Medal designation. I’m proud to be part of that anthology (in a set of paired poems that Kelly Fineman and I wrote) and doubly proud to be represented in the Eurekas twice!
