My last two posts have mentioned our recent “Best Book” winner, Irv Sternberg, and this post is no exception. The December promotion in which we sought one amazing manuscript to publish for free provided a wonderful opportunity to reward a talented author. And Mr. Sternberg provides a nice segue of sorts to this posting’s topic – which is about the Colorado Humanities and their annual Colorado Book Awards. You see, Irv’s prior book, Neptune’s Chariot, was a Colorado Book Awards finalist last year.
Tomorrow, the Colorado Book Awards are being awarded at the Doerr-Hosier Center in Aspen on June 25th, the last day of the week-long Aspen Literary Festival. Outskirts Press is a premiere sponsor of the Colorado Center for the Book and its Colorado Book Awards and I will be on-hand at the event to assist with the distribution of the awards. For a full list of the finalists, please visit the Colorado Humanities website here. Congratulations to them all!
