On Saturday, "Inspired Georgia
," the dual-anthology of Georgia poets & photographers, was awarded as a finalist in the Georgia Author of the Year Awards! We'd like to thank all the contributing photographers to the project, Georgia Council for the Arts, Georgia Humanities Council, University of Georgia Press, and our fellow editors, Judson Mitcham & Karen Paty.
It was a great evening. We shook hands with the Congressman of ACP's home district, John Lewis, who won the memoir category for his incredible "March" trilogy. Inspired Georgia came in 2nd to a stablemate, of sorts, "Historic Rural Churches of Georgia
" by Sonny Seals & George S. Hart (with a forward by President Carter), which was also published by University of Georgia Press.
If you want a "finalist" sticker for your book, let us know! ; )
