Just a quick note that I’ve been nominated for a couple of Brodie awards for essays that appeared on this blog.
- Best LDS Church Watch Piece for “Missionaries Coming Home Early?”
- Best Response to Apologetics for “The Fog of Marriage” and “More on the Polygamy Essays.”
I’m honored that someone thinks that highly of my small contributions to the discussion around Mormonism. I confess that it’s endlessly fascinating to me, and it’s unlikely that I’ll ever be able to “leave it alone.” But then it wouldn’t make sense to abandon something I find so interesting, would it?
Anyway, check out the other nominations at Main Street Plaza, and if you are so inclined, vote for my essays or anyone else’s you like. I am most proud that my book, Heaven Up Here, won the award in 2011 for “Best Book-Length Memoirs.”
