Kent Meyers, associate professor of humanities and writer-in-residence at Black Hills State University, received the Best Fiction award for his novel “Twisted Tree” at the High Plains Book Awards in Billings, Mont.
This is the second major literary award “Twisted Tree” has won. In May it won The Society of Midland Authors award in fiction, which covers a twelve-state region in the Midwest. “Twisted Tree” has received rave reviews from New York Times, the Washington Post, and Publishers Weekly.
A previous novel of Meyers, “The Work of Wolves,” was selected for the One Book South Dakota in 2005.
The High Plains Book Awards recognize regional authors and/or literary works that examine and reflect on life on the High Plains, including Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas, and the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
