Book of the Year Finalist

Hi All,

Apparently We Mad Climb Shaky Ladders (CavanKerry Press, Feb 2009) my book of poems about living with schizophrenia, has been nominated a finalist for ForeWord Magazine’s 2009 Book of the Year (in the Poetry category). I dunno what this means, and I doubt highly that it will win, but I am very happy and grateful to have been made a finalist at all. The results will be announced on May 25th  at the BookExpo American, wherever and whatever that is. I’ll keep you posted, or perhaps you can keep me posted…

Here’s the cover of the book just in case you don’t know what it looks like:

One thought on “Book of the Year Finalist”

  1. Congratulations Pam!! I bought WE MAD CLIMB SHAKY LADDERS a month ago or so and read it straight through. It’s excellent. I’m going to read it again because it’s the kind of work you can read again and again. I hope you win the award because you deserve it. How did the rest of your trip to Washington, D.C. go? When you have a chance, drop me a line.

    Your Friend Kate : )
