Erickson_Twelve coverThe 24th annual Northeastern Minnesota Book Award nominees have been announced, and look out, there are a lot of them. Competition is going to be stiff, particularly in the category of nonfiction, which has 17 finalists.

(Good luck to all of them. And good luck to the two in the art/photography category, where the odds are a little better.)

The NEMBA is a joint venture of the UMD Library, Friends of the Duluth Public Library and Lake Superior Writers. The ceremony will be May 17 in Duluth. Thriller writer Brian Freeman will be the keynote, and, as always, poet Barton Sutter will be the charming emcee. Winners will receive $200 and a truly lovely glass plaque.
