Over at BIO, we’ve narrowed our list of Plutarch Award nominees from ten (see the list just below) to a literary Final Four. You can see ’em in the pic above. And a really interesting bunch they are.
Voting stays open until May 15, which means once I finish George Lucas (should happen by the end of the weekend), I can get to reading these terrific books. I’m especially looking forward to reading Peter Guralnick’s Sam Phillips, mainly because his Elvis book Careless Love is one of my favorite books of all time. And I’m not even an Elvis fan, thangyewverrahmush.
Looks like a great list. Best wishes on wrapping up the Lucas biography (I saw your comment about a possible December 2016 publication–crossing my fingers!). We live near the Library of Congress’s Packard campus in Culpeper, VA, which preserves audio-visual materials and shows movies (free!) to the public. They showed Labyrinth last night (had a good-sized crowd), and now I need to go back and read the Labyrinth part in your Henson biography.
