The Before Columbus Foundation has just announced the winners of this year’s American Book Awards and among them are Bill Maxwell’s F.B. Eyes: How J. Edgar Hoover’s Ghostreaders Framed African American Literature. This is the 37th year of the American Book Awards and it is a considerable feat to win such recognition. Having served as a judge for more than a few literary awards I know how incredibly hard it is to win one. Bill deserves a real tip of the hat from everyone for his accomplishment.
