It has been an exciting couple of months. My new book, Freedom Climbers, has won the Grand Prize at the 2011 Banff Mountain Book Festival. The award was announced on October 25, 2011 and will be presented on November 3, 2011 at 5 p.m. at The Banff Centre.

It has also been short-listed for the Boardman Tasker Award for Mountain Literature, a UK-based prize that honors the memory of Peter Boardman and Joe Tasker. The winner will be announced on November 18, 2011 in Kendal, England.

A couple of foreign publishers have also picked it up. It will be published in Polish by Agora, a Warsaw-based publisher. The release date is December 2, 2011. And it will be published in Italian by Versante Sud, to be released in spring of 2012.
