The Texas Institute of Letters, which has been promoting the state’s best writers since 1936, just released its list of nominees for its annual awards.
The competition is limited to authors who have lived in the state for at least two years or have entries pertaining to Texas subjects. Not surprisingly. some of the best-known writers in the state — such as Stephen Harrigan, C.W. Smith and Naomi Shihab Nye — are among the nominees, which are listed after the jump (with links to our reviews when possible.)
The awards will be given in San Antonio on April 14.
