bonnie gloverIt is with great pleasure to let you know that Bonnie J. Glover has been announced as a NAACP Image Awards nominee in the Outstanding Literary Work – Fiction category for Going Down South: A Novel (Random House/One World/Ballentine).  Bonnie is the author of The Middle Sister, published by Ballantine/OneWorld in May 2005. It was longlisted for the International Impac Dublin Literary Award.  Her second novel, Going Down South, is an inspirational story about second chances at realizing the unparalleled love exists between mothers and daughters.

The NAACP Image Awards is the nation’s premier event celebrating the outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts (motion picture, television, recording, and literature), as well as those individuals or groups who promote social justice through their creative endeavors.

This year, over 1,200 entries were received. From those entries, a special committee of 300 industry professionals and NAACP leaders as well as a few specialized subcommittees from across the country selected five nominees in each of 53 categories. Any artist, manager, publicist, production company, record label, studio, network or publishing house could submit an entry to the NAACP Image Awards. The final selections are voted on by NAACP members, and winners will be announced during the live airing of the 40th NAACP Image Awards.

Congratulations Bonnie!  This is a GREAT achievement!
