Bellwether Prize Winner 2010: Naomi Benaron

Naomi BenaronNaomi Benaron is the 2010 Bellwether Prize winner for her manuscript Running the Rift! Yay! Barbara Kingsolver says of the manuscript:“It engages the reader with complex political questions about ethnic animosity in Rwanda and so many other issues relevant to North American readers. For one, it conveys the impossibility of remaining neutral within a climate of broad moral compromise—even for purportedly apolitical institutions like the Olympics.” I can't wait to read the book which will be published by the wonderful Algonquin Books (my publisher as well as the publisher of the 4th Bellwether Prize winner and writer extraordinaire Mudbound by Hillary Jordan.)  Learn more about Naomi here.  Publication date to be announced soon!
