Michael Martone was awarded the 2013 National Author prize (which comes with a $10,000 cash award). James H. Madison was the Regional Author winner ($7,500). The National Author award recognizes "a writer with Indiana ties, but whose work is known and read throughout the country." The Regional Author award honors a "writer who is well-known and respected throughout the state of Indiana."
And we now know the three finalists for the Emerging Author award - Tricia Fields, Mike Mullin and Kelsey Timmerman. The winner of that $2,000 award, which recognizes "a writer who has published no more than two books during his/her lifetime," will be announced during the Oct. 26 ceremony.
In addition to the cash prize, each writer will designate a $2,500 grant to the library of his or her choosing.
