Peg Alford Pursell's Show Her a Flower, A Bird, A Shadow has won the 2017 Indies Book of the Year for Literary Fiction award. The book was originally published in March 2017 by the now-defunct ELJ Editions, which closed its doors three weeks after publication of the book, and was sold out in July. WTAW Press brought out a second edition in September 2017. You can read more about that in this interview at Bloom: Hybridity, Compression, Shimmer: Q & A With Peg Alford Pursell. And you can still get a copy of the book in our shop here.
Peg Alford Pursell is the visionary founder and director of WTAW Press and Why There Are Words reading series, and exemplifies our belief in persevering. Her next book, A GIRL GOES INTO THE FOREST, will be published by Dzanc Books in 2019.
