Share Is Finalist for L. L. Winship/PEN New England Award

Don Share, curator of Houghton Library's George Edward Woodberry Poetry Room, was one of the five finalists for this year's prestigious L. L. Winship/PEN New England Award, sponsored by The Boston Globe. Share was recognized for his book Union (Zoo Press, 2002), a collection of poems that explore how two disparate philosophies—or groups or emotions or people—come together in both conflict and harmony. Other finalists for the award include Sven Birkerts for My Sky Blue Trades, Robert Harms for The Diligent: A Voyage Through the Worlds of the Slave Trade, Lucy Honig for Open Season, and Atul Gawande for Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science. The winner of this year's award is Adam Haslett for You Are Not a Stranger Here. Haslett, Share, and the other finalists were recognized at a recent awards ceremony at the John F. Kennedy Library. Previous winners include E. B. White, André Dubus, Susan Cheever, Tracy Kidder, Mary Oliver, Susan Quinn, Jill Ker Conway, Jan Swafford, Anita Shreve, Donald Hall, John Dower, Jay Wright, and Elizabeth McCracken.
