Alice is celebrating June with two awards for Intersecting Sets: A Poet Looks at Science. First, on June 7, she received a gold medal in the 35th National Magazine Awards for “The Ultraviolet Catastrophe”. This essay from the book had been excerpted in special “Quarc” issue of The New Quarterly.
Two days later, she received the Wilfrid Eggleston Award for non-fiction from the Writers Guild of Alberta at its awards gala. The jury’s praise was enthusiastic: “Measured against the writer’s intentions and the pleasure it offers to readers, this book is practically perfect.”
