Hopi Summer, 2011 Nominee for OneBookAZ

Several months ago I posted a very positive review of a book by Carolyn O’Bagy Davis titled Hopi Summer: Letters from Ethel to Maud (Rio Nuevo Publishers, 2007). Her book is currently a finalist for the OneBookAZ 2011 award. I have always been supportive of Davis and her work, and Hopi Summer is certainly worthy of this and other awards. If you are a resident of Arizona, and you would like to vote for Hopi Summer, you can do so between September 27 and October 15 at the following website: http://www.onebookaz.org

    This looks great, Matt! I’ll order a copy. Do you think it would work well for high school seniors?

    Thanks for your comment, Debbie. I believe Hopi Summer would work well for high school seniors. It’s interesting, well written, and Davis included several black and white photographs to go with her narrative.
