Exciting news! Save the Deli has just won the 2010 Canadian Jewish Book Award for Memoir/Biography.
Now, while I don’t quite get the memoir/biography thing, I’m really honored and quite blown away.
The awards ceremony takes place in just under a month, on May 27th, at the Al Green theatre in Toronto’s downtown JCC (great shvitz there). I will not be attending (I’ll be on my honeymoon), but my dapper Canadian publisher and editor Doug Pepper will be there to accept on my behalf. Tickets are free.
This is definitely some great news, and a thanks to those who nominated and voted for Save the Deli.
Next up, the James Beard Awards, which take place this sunday in NYC, and where Save the Deli is nominated in the category of Writing and Literature. Hopefully it’ll be another dose of naches.
