Writing with Scissors wins Transdisciplinary Book Award

I’m thrilled to officially announce that Writing with Scissors has won the Institute for Humanities Research (Arizona State University)’s Transdisciplinary Humanities Book Award. The award honors a nonfiction work that exemplifies transdisciplinary, socially engaged humanities-based scholarship. What an honor to have my book described that way! The award committee writes, “Garvey’s book provides a novel take on our familiar national history, recounting events, both major and minor, as told by the individuals who lived them and recorded them in their scrapbooks.” I’m looking forward to giving a talk at the award ceremony, Oct. 9, 4-5:30.
