My Book Nominated for Literature Award

Good news to share with you.

The Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries nominated my book America’s Romance with the English Garden (Ohio University Press) for its Annual Literature Award.

I was delighted to hear the news this summer.

Logo Horticultural associationThe Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries is an international organization of individuals, organizations and institutions concerned with the development, maintenance and use of libraries of botanical and horticultural literature. Many University libraries and Botanical Gardens make up its membership.

Created in 2000, the Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries Annual Literature Award is given by CBHL to both the author and publisher of a work that makes a significant contribution to the literature of botany or horticulture.
