Rosemary Daniell Awarded the Governor's Award in the Humanities!

Georgia Humanities Council

May, 2008: Rosemary was just delighted to hear that she's received a Governor's Award in the Humanities for her impact on the state of Georgia! She will be honored at a luncheon in Atlanta on May 8. According to the Georgia Humanities Council, "Rosemary Daniell believes in the healing powers of literature and has introduced that power to aspiring authors from all walks of life. From schools to prisons, from mental hospitals to youth detention centers, she has built literary communities for Georgians who would not have otherwise had access to such opportunities. Ms. Daniell has also taught at colleges and universities. More than 50 of her students are now published authors.  She is greatly loved by her writing group members and highly respected by critics and literary peers.

Ms. Daniell’s books include poetry, two memoirs, a novel and two books on writing, The Woman Who Spilled Words All Over Herself and Secrets of the Zona Rosa. Her first memoir, Fatal Flowers, about growing up female and Southern, won the first Palimpsest Prize for a most requested out-of-print book.

'Ms. Daniell has worked tirelessly to share stories and heritage with Georgians,' said Gov. Sonny Perdue. 'I salute all the winners for their efforts to promote the humanities in Georgia.'"

A great award, thanks to the nominees who so generously wrote nominations on her behalf -- even if -- oops! -- they got the number of her books wrong! The actual figure is eight!
