St. Lawrence Book Award Finalist Chosen for Publication

In addition to naming a winner for the 2009 St. Lawrence Book Award, Black Lawrence Press editors have chosen one of the finalists for publication. Finalist Eric Gamalinda’s short story collection People Are Strange will be available from Black Lawrence Press in late 2011.

Diane Goettel, BLP’s Executive Editor, caught up with Eric in Hong Kong last week when he was in town for the 2009 Man Asian Literary Prize award ceremony. Congratulations to Eric for being shortlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize for his novel The Descartes Highland and for having People Are Strange chosen for publication from the pool of St. Lawrence Book Award finalists.
