WCSA Awards

Each year, the Working-Class Studies Association awards exemplary works in its field.  Nick Coles has briefly reviewed these works on the Working-Class Perspectives Blog.  There’s some great work here, and I have Paola Corso’s newest poetry collection, The Laundress Catches Her Breath, (which won the Tillie Olsen Award in Creative Writing) sitting on my nightstand just waiting to be read!  What the post doesn’t note, but I will mention here, is that The Pattern Maker’s Daughter by Sandee Gertz Umbach came in second for this award! I talk a bit about this book here. So, consider adding these works to your summer reading list.
