American Studies Association Annual Meeting, November 21-24, 2013

Another great conference last week: the annual meeting of the American Studies Association in Washington, DC. As usual, it was so terrific to meet our authors in person and sell books to the crowd.

We had two award winners at ASA this year. Annette Kolodny's In Search of First Contact won the 2013 Thomas J. Lyon Book Award in Western American Literary and Cultural Studies. And Adria Imada received Honorable Mention for the Lora Romero Book Prize given by the American Studies Association. Imada's book has also been honored by the Congress on Research in Dance, the Organization of American Historians, and the Berkshire Conference of Women Historians. Here she is holding her multi-award-winning book Aloha America!
