Sharp Stars Receives Poets Prize Nomination

Congratulations to BOA poet Sharon Bryan for having her collection Sharp Stars nominated for the distinguished Poet's Prize. The Poet's Prize is awarded by a panel of fellow poets in honor of the "best book of poems published in 2009." This isn't the first award recognition for Sharp Stars either. The book was given the Isabella Gardner Poetry Award for 2009. The Gardner Award is given biennially to a poet in mid-career whose manuscript is of exceptional merit.  Adam Zagajewski says of the book: "Sharon Bryan is a poet who contemplates radical questions and situations.  Her beautiful astonishment vis-a-vis the universe knows no limits.  Her poems dance this amazement." Congratulations, Sharon - and continued success with Sharp Stars! [caption id="attachment_373" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Sharon Bryan. BOA poet."]Sharon Bryan. BOA poet.[/caption]
