Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha's Care Work: a Publishing Triangle Award finalist
This is Leah's second nomination in this category; her memoir Dirty River was a finalist in 2016. Also nominated this year are Black, Queer, Southern, Women: An Oral History, by E. Patrick Johnson (University of North Carolina Press); The Lesbian South: Southern Feminists, the Women in Print Movement, and the Queer Literary Canon, by Jaime Harker (University of North Carolina Press); and Looking for Lorraine: The Radiant and Radical Life of Lorraine Hansberry, by Imani Perry (Beacon Press).
Care Work has been a big word-of-mouth success since its publication last October; it's already in its third printing.
The Publishing Triangle Awards will be presented at a ceremony in New York on April 25, at the Auditorium of the New School (66 West 12 Street in New York City) at 7 p.m.
Congratulations to Leah and all the finalists!
