Many congratulations to SPD press Belladonna* -- Cancer Angel by Beth Murray has won our Gold Medal in Poetry in The Commonwealth Club's 85th Annual California Book Awards, one of the oldest literary awards in the country.

 

From the jury's comments: "the jury and I are excited to announce this year's winners, an amazing diversity of voices sounding out the Zeitgeist... [they are all] equally compelling, providing historical context, relentless questioning, and the salve of true art."
