Best Local Book Released In The Last Year

1st Place: Jay Gilbertson, Full Moon Over Madeline Island
2nd Place: BJ Hollars, Sightings
3rd Place: Joe Niese, Burleigh Grimes: Baseball’s Last Legal Spitballer

One thing that has always impressed me about Eau Claire is that you can’t shake a stick in this town without hitting an author. That’s why this category is so competitive this year. Leading the way is Jay Gilbertson with his third book in a series, Full Moon Over Madeline Island. Following that is BJ Hollars’ Sightings and Joe Niese’s snapshot of early baseball, Burleigh Grimes: Baseball’s Last Legal Spitballer. –Scott Morfitt
