Stacey D’Erasmo Wins Lambda Foundation Award
Warren Wilson faculty member Stacey D’Erasmo has won the Lambda Literary Foundation’s 2012 Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist Prize, for her novel, A Seahorse Year (2005, Mariner Books).
The award consists of two cash prizes of $5000 to authors who have made significant contributions to LGBT literature and community. This year’s prize recognizes Stacey and novelist Brian Leung for “creating works which incorporate multi-faceted LGBT characters and who are themselves often involved in the mentoring and teaching of a new generation of LGBT writers.”
Awards will be presented June 4, 2012 at the 24th Annual Lambda Literary Awards ceremony in New York City.
