I’m pleased to announce that my play Lost Wavelengths has been chosen as a finalist for the Oregon Book Award, which is kind of like Oregon’s version of the Booker Prize. I couldn’t be happier to be in such distinguished company. I’ve twice been a finalist (for Bombardment and Altered States of America), and it’s both gratifying and humbling. Though everybody says it’s great to be nominated for this or that, the OBA is a case where, whether or not the play’s finally chosen, you’ve really already won just by being recognized. Thank you so much, Literary Arts!
