This past week the Washington Center of the Book released its list of finalists for the 2017 Washington State Book Awards. Lovecraft Country is nominated in the novel category, and it’s in good company: the other finalists include The Solace of Monsters, by Laurie Blauner; Stories of Your Life and Others, by Ted Chiang; Barkskins, by Annie Proulx; and Daredevils, by Shawn Vestal.
The full list of finalists in all categories can be found here. The winners will be announced on Saturday, October 14, at 7 P.M. at a ceremony at the main branch of the Seattle Public Library; the awards ceremony will be followed by a reception and book signing. I hope to see you there!
