A week after our Oscar party I get to indulge my own West Coast red carpet fantasies.
The Los Angeles Times just announced the finalists for its 2008 Book Prizes, and What the Nose Knows is nominated for the Science & Technology award.
The nod comes with a plane ticket to the awards ceremony on April 24th where the winners will be announced. It’s also the kickoff for that weekend’s Los Angeles Festival of Books, one of the country’s biggest literary events for the public.
Needless to say, I’m thrilled to be selected. And I’m really looking forward to meeting more of my readers at the Festival.
