Cartoonist And Author Mimi Pond Wins 2014 Literary Award From PEN Center USA In Graphic Literature


The author, artist and cartoonist Mimi Pond took home the 2014 Literary Award in the Graphic Literature category from PEN Center USA, according to this announcement. Special attention was given to Pond's recent memoir Over Easy, according to the citation. That book has just gone back to a second printing, says a post at publisher Drawn And Quarterly.

The winners are honored at a banquet in November. Pond will receive a $1000 cash prize.

This is the second year in a row that an author won during a year where a special citation went to their recent work with D+Q, with 2013 being Gilbert Hernandez's year for Marble Season.
