Raising Wrecker wins the 2012 WILLA Award for Contemporary Fiction

Summer Wood - November 5, 2012

Thank you, Women Writing the West! Here's a description of the award from their website:

The award is named in honor of Pulitzer Prize winner Willa Cather, one of the country's foremost novelists. Awarded annually for outstanding literature featuring women's stories set in the West, the WILLA Literary Awards are chosen by a distinguished panel of professional librarians. The awards are presented at the annual WWW conference.

I had a wonderful time visiting with the women at the awards banquet, and send my deep appreciation for the work they do. I'm honored to have my novel take its place alongside the work of other WILLA Award winners--Annie Proulx, Pam Houston, and Debra Magpie Earling among them.
