As we’ve previously noted on this blog, TwinCities.com is taking your votes for the 2010 Minnesota Book Awards Readers’ Choice Award. Sue Leaf’s nature memoir The Bullhead Queen is among 32 finalists for this special prize.
Votes are being tallied up through March 31st — which means you’ve got one day left to vote! (Technically, one-and-a-half.)
“Like the late Paul Gruchow’s Journal of a Prairie Year, Sue Leaf’s The Bullhead Queen records a sensitive observer’s impressions of local animals, plants, and a partly developed lake across Minnesota’s seasons. This is a gentle, plainspoken book that finds its truths in what is most local and personal—a breviary for humble, semiwild/semideveloped places.” —Jan Zita Grover
