I’m thrilled to announce that I have been selected from a field of national entrants as a finalist in the MIT Press Pitchfest. Along with six others, I will be pitching my book proposal to a panel of experts and a live audience at the Boston Book Festival on October 13. The prize is the opportunity to work with an editor at the MIT Press on book development and $1000.
