In addition to the four BOA authors, who were recipients of 2011 National Endowment for the Arts Poetry Fellowships, we are thrilled to announce that translator Brian Henry was awarded an NEA fellowship to support his translation of Slovenian writer Aleš Šteger's collection of lyric essays Berlin. You can read more about Henry's prestigious grant here. The NEA fellowship will help Henry to continue his dedication to exposing English readers to the work of one of Slovenia's most promising young writers, an undertaking first begun with Henry's translation of Šteger's The Book Things, which was published just last fall by BOA Editions. Congratulations to Brian Henry and Aleš Šteger for their achievements! If you have not already picked up a copy of The Book of Things, check it out in the BOA Bookstore Online.
