Last night the winner of the Winterset Award was announced. Randall Maggs took first place with his biographical book of poems entitled Night Work: The Sawchuk Poems, a collection that has been in the works for a number of years. It’s great to see a local poet winning out over prose and other genres. This is one book I’ve been tempted to pick up, but haven’t as yet, though I’d heard the author read from the manuscript a number of times before it was published. I think I will be looking for this one at the bookstore very soon.
