We’re very proud of Christine Deavel, co-owner of Open Books: A Poem Emporium (and an NWBL columnist!), who just won a Washington State Book Award for her poetry collection, Woodnote. We interviewed her about the collection last year. Congrats, Christine!
Congrats also to fiction winner Peter Mountford (A Young Man’s Guide to Late Capitalism); biography/memoir winner Paul Lindholdt (In Earshot of Water: Notes from the Columbia Plateau); nonfiction winner Erik Larson (In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin); and children’s winners Nikki McClure (To Market, to Market) and Katherine Schlick Noe (Something to Hold).
