On March 21, a Whiting Award for Fiction was awarded to FP author Brontez Purnell for Since I Laid My Burden Down. 

From the Selection Committee:

"Brontez Purnell is an important new voice: loud and beautiful, sexy and sweaty. His explorations of blackness, queerness, maleness, and Southernness take sharp, confident turns between raunch and rhapsody. Purnell has a gift for illuminating the different forms of care and connection, and somehow – through his own wit and heart – manages to rescue the notion of intimacy from cliché. His fiction has the burn of truth hard-won, and these slim books are rich beyond their bounds."
