Publishing Triangle Awards

The Publishing Triangle has announced the nominees for their 2007 awards. You can read the full listing here.

There are three poetry books by lesbians nominated. They are:

The Audre Lorde Award for Lesbian Poetry
Robin Becker, The Domain of Perfect Affection (University of Pittsburgh Press)
Kate Lynn Hibbard, Sleeping Upside Down (Silverfish Review Press)
Jennifer Rose, Hometown for an Hour (Ohio University Press)

I’ve only read Robin Becker’s book. I’ll have to look for the other two.

I’d also like to give a shout out to the fabulous Alex MacLennan nominated for the Edmund White award for debut fiction. Alex’s book The Zookeeper is supposed to be phenomenal. It’s on the top of my summer reading list.

It’s wonderful to see great queer books being recognized.
