Congratulations to the 2016 inductees to the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame!
Yesterday, the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning in Lexington, announced the 5-member class of inductees. Following Wendell Berry’s induction last year as the Hall’s first living writer, nominations were opened again for one living author to be included in the 2016 class. This year’s honor went to Bobbie Ann Mason.
“Bobbie Ann has been one of Kentucky’s premier writers for more than 40 years,” said Neil Chethik, Executive Director of the Carnegie Center. “She’s a pioneer in short-story writing and a true literary artist. We are thrilled to be honoring her.”
We hope you’ll join us at the Carnegie Center for the 2016 Induction Ceremony slated for Thursday, January 28, 7:00 PM, honoring Bobbie Ann Mason and her fellow inductees!
