High Plains Book Awards (2009)

Louise Erdrich was honored with an emeritus award during the High Plains Book Awards (2009) banquet at Montana State University last weekend. Other winners included:

Leif Enger's So Brave, Young and Handsome (fiction)
In Contemporary Rhythm: The Art of Ernest L. Blumenschein by Peter H. Hassrick and Elizabeth J. Cunningham (nonfiction)
Margot Kahn's Horses That Buck (first book)
Craig Arnold's Made Flesh (poetry)
Jennifer Graf Broneberg's Road Map to Holland (Zonta Award for best woman writer).

As the Billings Gazette noted, the High Plains Book Awards "were established by Parmly Billings Library trustees and recognize regional writers or literary works examining and reflecting life on the High Plains."
