The Word is Out

The Colorado Book Award

Posted in Author Blog by Sandy Munro on July 18, 2012

I was gratified that Finding Uri was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award in the Creative Nonfiction category. On June 22nd with family and friends, we bravely attended the award ceremony. I had high hopes, which were only slightly dampened by the level of competition. There were successful authors there with multiple books—writers who taught writing programs and wrote plays. The long and short of it is, hey, I’m proud to have been nominated. Sure, I cried a little and screamed at the judges ... just kidding. The good part is that once or twice each week I hear from someone who is genuinely moved by the book. The nomination, and readers’ continuing responses have spurred me on in the new writing project. Thanks to everyone at People’s Press!

Colorado Book Awards select Finding Uri

Posted in Author Blog by Sandy Munro on April 16, 2012

I guess I was getting over mild feelings of dismay. My book had been submitted for several prizes, and yet there was no news. People seemingly love the book, and reviews have been almost embarrassingly positive, but I began to think that everyone was, perhaps, being kind. No one wanted to deliver the bad news, and my friends were all “blowing smoke.”

Now I’m all happy again, and pleased to announce that Finding Uri is been named a finalist in the Colorado Book Awards for this year. There will be a reading by category finalists in Denver on Thursday evening in Denver, and Award Winners will be announced in Aspen as part of the the Summer Words Literary Festival on June 22nd.

If you’re in the big city I’d love to have you drop by. It’s from 5 - 8pm at the Residence Inn at 1725 Champa Street.
