Greenspan and Rivera-Servera win Lambda Literary awards
Two books from the University of Michigan Press took home top honors at last night's Lambda Literary Award ceremony. The Myopia and Other Plays by David Greenspan, edited by Marc Robinson, won the LGBT Drama category and Performing Queer Latinidad: Dance, Sexuality, Politics by Ramon Rivera-Servera won for LGBT Studies. Sara Warner's Acts of Gaiety was also nominated in the LGBT Studies category.
Now in their 25th year, the Lambda Literary Awards (or "Lammys") are presented annually to the best books on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender themes in an array of fiction and nonfiction categories. Greenspan's win represents the second consecutive year the Press has taken the LGBT Drama category, with Peggy Shaw and Jill Dolan's A Menopausal Gentleman winning in 2012.
Major congratulations to David Greenspan, Marc Robinson, Ramon Rivera-Servera, and all the Lammy winners!
