We are thrilled to announce that the New Hampshire Writer's Project has awarded Deborah Brown's Walking the Dog's Shadow their "Outstanding Poetry Book" award. The award, which is given to a poet's outstanding book or chapbook of poetry every two or three years, has previously been won by such writers as Charles Simic and Maxine Kumin. Deborah Brown's collection was selected by Tony Hoagland as the 2010 winner of BOA's A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize. Walking the Dog's Shadow was published in April 2011. We hope you will check out these poems and more on Deborah Brown if you have not already in the BOA store and find more info on the New Hampshire Literary Awards here. This is a good time to mention that the A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize is currently accepting submissions. This year's distinguished judge is Cornelius Eady.
