Richard Ford to Receive Sanders Award at FIU April 4th
The Sanders Award is given annually to a writer of fiction, identified by the FIU Creative Writing Program, whose work combines literary excellence with popular appeal. The award is supported by a grant from the Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation of Boca Raton. Sanders, who died in 1998, was the author of well-regarded popular novels, including The First Deadly Sin. The Creative Writing Program also wishes to extend its thanks to The Betsy Hotel and Barnes & Nobles Booksellers for their support of Writers on the Bay.
