It’s a quiet beautiful day here in Wyoming. The aspens and cottonwoods just have their first touches of yellow, heralding the arrival of autumn a bit early, but it’s been a cool summer.
We were just informed that we will be the recipients of the 2023 Frank Waters Award. “The Frank Waters Award stands for exemplary literary achievement, as well as a canon of writing that communicates a deep understanding, celebration, and love of our human nature and peoples of all races.” Previous recipients are: Barbara Kingsolver, Tony Hillerman, and John Nichols.
It’s a great privilege to receive an award that bears Frank Waters’ name. The award is given by the Pike’s Peak Library District, and we are deeply grateful for this honor.
The award ceremony will be held in Colorado Springs on June 3, 2023.
