Nicola won the Lammy!

Last night, Nicola won the Lambda Literary Foundation Award for women’s memoir. It was a lovely event at the Silver Screen Theatre in the Pacific Design Center in LA, attended by many of the best queer writers in the world.

Nicola was awesome. She gave a heartfelt, moving speech that clearly touched the audience. And it was absolutely terrific to see so many people approach her with such genuine admiration and good wishes. A grand evening.

Or, as I love to say, my sweetie rocks!

Congratulations to all the winners and nominees. Thank you to the organizers who worked so hard to put the event together. And thanks especially to all the people with whom we had great conversations and from whom we felt such goodwill.

Nicola Griffith reading – May 6

Nicola will read at the Lambda Literary Awards Finalists reading at Hugo House in Seattle on May 6 at 7:00 pm. Also reading is Corrina Wycoff, finalist in the Lesbian Debut Fiction category.

Nicola will read from her kickass memoir, and it will be fun. The reading is in the Cabaret space at Hugo House, and the café very sensibly offers beer and wine for sale during the event. Please join us for an evening of good writing in a convivial atmosphere.
