Agnes Walsh Nominated for Book Award

Agnes Walsh's second poetry collection, Going Around with Bachelors, has been nominated for the 20th annual Lambda Literary Award for poetry.

The Lambda Literary Foundation is America’s leading organization for LGBT literature. Their mission is "to celebrate LGBT literature and provide resources for writers, readers, booksellers, publishers, and librarians – the whole literary community."

"Lambda Literary Awards are presented in twenty-one categories . In determining whether a book should be nominated, consider that the Lambda Literary Awards are based principally on the quality of the writing and the LGBT content of the work. The sexual orientation of the author is secondary."


Going Around with Bachelors, published by Brick Books, is available as a digital download on the Rattling Books website (the print version can be found on Brick's website). Agnes Walsh's first poetry collection, In the Old Country of My Heart, is available as an audio book from Rattling Books.
