Finalist for Simpson Family Literary Prize

I was one of 4 writers named as a finalist for the $50,000 prize, awarded to a writer in mid-career. “The Simpson Family Literary Project administers the prize with the collaboration of the Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation and the UC Berkeley English Department. The Simpson Project is named in honor of Barclay and Sharon Simpson and their family, philanthropists whose mission is to help artists and students and underserved children.” Info here.
