ASJA Names “Little Boy Blue” One of Year’s Best Nonfiction Books

Posted on March 12, 2013


The American Society of Journalists and Authors has just announced the winners of its 2013 writing competition. Little Boy Blue earned an honorable mention for outstanding general nonfiction book of the year. It was among just five books cited, including the winning title.

“This is the toughest competition that Little Boy Blue has seen so far, and I am grateful that the title was selected,” says author Kim Kavin. “The winner in this category was Buried in the Sky, a bestselling book about sherpas on the mountain K2. Outside magazine called it the most important book on its topic in the past decade. To have Little Boy Blue in that type of company is a real thrill.”

The ASJA Awards will be presented at a reception in Manhattan in April. Kavin, a longtime ASJA member, is expected to attend.
