Ted Geltner was honored with a Georgia Author of the Year Award last night in the Biography category. Upon learning that he won (he hated to miss the event, but was attending his daughter's high school graduation!), he said, "I’m extremely honored to be recognized by the Georgia Writers Association and delighted that Blood, Bone and Marrow was acknowledged among all the other excellent books nominated this year. I want to express my gratitude to everybody at University of Georgia Press for all their support. My hope is that the brilliant writing that Harry Crews produced during his lifetime will be studied and enjoyed for generations to come."
