The (new and improved) PNBA book award

On Saturday I was in Portland to receive a Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association award for Bad Monkeys. This is my second PNBA award -- Set This House in Order won in 2004 -- and I'm pleased to report that the experience does not get old.

This year's award plaques were designed by an artist named Jerril Nilson. How cool is this:

The book spines are from the other award winners -- Lauren Kessler's Dancing with Rose: Finding Life in the Land of Alzheimer's,  Jim Harrison's Returning to Earth, Aryn Kyle's The God of Animals, Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, and Denis Johnson's Tree of Smoke.

My thanks to the PNBA, Jerril Nilson, and Chris Erickson and Kimberly Ogden of the Heathman Hotel, which hosted the event.
