These days, news anchors seem to think everything is “Breaking News.” It often reminds me of the boy who cried wolf–eventually everyone ignored his cries.
That said, I have a piece of news to share. I don’t normally toot my own horn, but it’s not every day someone says I’m a winner. Plus, I love the design of this slide, which was used at the award ceremony last weekend.
The Golden Crown Literary Society, which awards “Goldies,” was founded in 2004 with a mission to educate, promote, and recognize lesbian fiction and creative non-fiction. I was a bit surprised to learn my biography of publisher Barbara Grier won the award for creative non-fiction, but then one reviewer did say it reads like a novel.
Indomitable also was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award in the Lesbian Memoir/Biography category, and received an Honorable Mention in the Biography/Autobiography/Memoir category at the San Francisco Book Festival.
