Tom Sleigh wins $100,000 Kingsley Tufts Award

Tom Sleigh has won this year's Kingsley Tufts poetry award for his book Space Walk. Past winners include Lucia Perillo, Rodney Jones, and Campbell McGrath, which, for my money, gives the KT Award one of the best track records going. I will be ordering Sleigh's book today.

I am a fan of Mr. Sleigh's poetry and have all of his books. He is a fantastic reader of his own poetry and have seen people who have no interest in poetry be transformed after one of his readings.
