I have been invited to the 2009 Triangle Awards, which will be held May 7 at The New School in New York City. I’m not sure exactly how I got on their send-this-guy-a-card-inviting-him-to-this-thing list, but maybe it’s because I’m a New School alum? (Also, I’m pretty sure it’s a public event, but I did get an actual card in the actual mail, so it’s still a little extra special.) Well whatever the reason, it’s always nice to be thought of, so I’m going to go ahead and put this one on the calendar. You can learn more about the Triangle Awards and view the complete list of this year’s awards categorees and nominees for same by clicking anywhere in this part of this sentence, but I’d like to take a moment here and quickly shout out a hearty CONGRATS to the folks on here whose names I recognize- Alistair McCartney’s The End of the World Book (University of Wisconsin) is nominated for the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction; Blair Mastbaum’s Us Ones In Between (Running Press) is nominated for the Ferro-Grumley Award for LGBT Fiction. Cheers, gents!
