Dr. Bill Beverly’s 2016 novel “Dodgers” Awarded Mark Twain American Voice in LiteratureNovember 10, 2017
Associate professor of English Bill Beverly’s 2016 novel Dodgers was awarded the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in April and the British Book Award in May, both in the mystery/thriller category. It was given the Mark Twain American Voice in Literature Award by the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford, Connecticut, with an award ceremony in November. Twain Award judge Walter Harrison writes, “This is an important American book, which I think fits clearly within the Twain tradition, and squarely within the tradition of Huckleberry Finn. . . . Don’t let the label of “crime novel” fool you. Beverly has written an American classic.”
Dodgers was one of two finalists for the PEN/Hemingway Award for Debut Fiction, awarded April 2 at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston. The award went to Yaa Gyasi for her novel Homegoing. Dodgers was shortlisted for the Barry, Macavity, and Anthony Awards in the Best Debut Novel category. This autumn, it has been published in Dutch and Swedish editions.
His story “Hired Man” will appear in the British crime anthology Ten Year Stretch, edited by Martin Edwards, to be published in spring 2018.
Dr. Beverly also appeared on panels at the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville in March; at CrimeFest in Bristol, England, in May; and at the Bouchercon World Mystery Convention in Toronto in October. He will appear in November at the Baltimore Writers’ Conference at Towson State University, presenting on a panel titled “Writing the Other.” He will present on two panels at the 2018 Associated Writers and Writing Programs conference in Tampa in March 2018. He is a panelist for “Plot is not a Four-Letter Word: Teaching the Art of Storytelling in Fiction Courses.” He proposed and will moderate “A Life of Crime: Writing at the Dark End of the Street.”
Lastly, Dr. Beverly was awarded artist’s fellowships at the Rivendell Writers’ Colony in Tennessee and the Ucross Foundation in Wyoming.
Trinity Washington University congratulates Dr. Beverly on the debut of his first novel and the continued mountain of accolades and appearances to follow in its success.
