Montana Book Awards… Honor Book!

by Susan Henderson on February 12, 2019

Many of you know I’m on hiatus from social media while I work on the new book. I’ve spent part of my hiatus in Japan and Vietnam. I’ll share more down the road, but this break has been good for my head and for the new book, so I’m going to stay with it until I have a solid first draft.


But… need to share the news: The Flicker of Old Dreams was chosen by the Montana Book Award judges as an Honor Book. I’m grateful to be in such stellar company! Congratulations to the other Honor Award recipients—Rick Bass (The Traveling Feast), Sneed Collard (Warblers and Woodpeckers:  A Father-Son Big Year of Birding), and Katie Yale (Howl Like a Wolf)—as well as to the big prize winner, Chris La Tray (One-Sentence Journal:  Short Poems and Essays from the World at Large)!

Here are some news clips about it: KPVI NewsThe Missoulian, and Fact and Fiction.

Okay… heading back to my writer’s cave!
