American Nations wins Maine Literary Award
My thanks to the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance for giving the 2012 Maine Literary Award for non-fiction to my most recent book, American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America. It's an honor to receive such an award, and especially so when it comes from peers here in my native state.
Congratulations also to the other winners, and thanks to Joshua Bodwell and MWPA for an enjoyable awards ceremony last week here in Portland.
American Nations was previously named a Best Book of 2011 by both The New Republic and The Globalist and as a Top Ten Politics Book for Fall 2011 by Publishers Weekly.
