Lemon Hound and Touch To Affliction shortlisted for Lambda Literary Awards
Two Coach House titles, Lemon Hound by Sina Queyras and Touch To Affliction by Nathalie Stephens, have been named finalists for the 19th Annual Lambda Literary Awards in the category of lesbian poetry.
The Lambda Literary Awards are awarded yearly by the US-based Lambda Literary Foundation to published works which celebrate or investigate LGBT themes.
Finalists were chosen by a jury of judges who come from all walks of literary life: journalists, authors, booksellers, librarians, playwrights, illustrators. In all, 87 judges participated in the selection of finalists from the pool of 381 books that were nominated. Winners will be announced on Thursday, May 31, at the Lambda Literary Awards Ceremony in New York City.
Readers on the west coast are in for a treat, as Sina Queyras, author of the Lambda Literary Award-nominated Lemon Hound, is reading in Seattle on March 10, and in Vancouver on March 15 and 17. Please see the Events page for more information.
