Richardson and Kirby Win the Bancroft
Posted by: Keir Graff
William James: In the Maelstrom of American Modernism, by Robert D. Richardson (Houghton)
Mockingbird Song, by Jack Temple Kirby (Univ. of North Carolina)
Because these are not works of poetry, the cash prize is only $10,000 for each winner. It’s a good thing that researching, interpreting, and writing about historical events takes so little time!
