New Mexico Award Books

I had the pleasure of reviewing new books by New Mexicans and about New Mexico for the New Mexico Book Awards. And I was pleased how many patrons at the Library took time to vote for their favorite all time best New Mexico book this summer.

Last week the 2007 winners were announced in the New Mexico Book Awards. Sponsored by Borders Book Stores and the New Mexico Book Co-op, the New Mexico Book Awards recognizes the best in New Mexico's books. Winning books have been selected in thirty-three categories. The complete list of winners is available at http://nmbookaward.com -- click on the link at the bottom of the welcome page.

The winners in each of the categories were honored last week. In addition, special Lifetime Achievement Awards were given to Rudolfo Anaya and Tony Hillerman.

What is great about a contest like this, is that I can discover some of the below-the-radar books and authors that others have enjoyed and recommend. Check out the list; New Mexico is a writing state!
