About sixty people joined us at the New York Yacht Club for celebrating the award. This year we expanded the evening to include background about Long Man’s setting, an episode in 1936 involving the Tennessee Valley Authority. The early days of the TVA coincided with the WPA, so we brought in art made on the WPA art program. Here’s Reba discussing a favorite WPA print.
Many of the attendees complimented the program. We’ll attempt to add special features again to next year’s program. We are soliciting 2015 books from publishers. For more information, see the website http://williemorrisaward.org/.
