On Wednesday evening, consulting client Kim Reid won the Colorado Book Award in Nonfiction for her wonderful memoir, NO PLACE SAFE. Alas, I couldn't be there, as the awards ceremony was on the eve of Yom Kippur. (Apparently the organizers weren't thinking about The People of the Book.) Hooray for Kim!
And on Sept 25, client Carleen Brice won the African American Literary Awards Show prize for Break-out Novel of the Year for her lovely debut, ORANGE MINT AND HONEY. (Her 2nd novel, CHILDREN OF THE WATERS, will be released in July; read the prologue.) Hooray for Carleen!
Hint: The books would make excellent holiday presents. And they're in thrifty trade paperback!
