Best Local Book Released In The Last Year

Nickolas Butler takes the No. 1 spot for his second novel, The Hearts of Men. In this book, Butler reminds us that we can choose to let the painful pieces of our lives destroy us, or we can forgive. One of our favorite local celebrities, Michael Perry, takes second place for his latest nonfiction work, Montaigne in Barn Boots. Winner of the Brittingham Prize in Poetry, Max Garland, takes third place with his latest volume of poetry, The Word We Used For It, which left some readers speechless. To say that these books are our top three favorites doesn’t give them half the credit they deserve. You simply have to read each one. – Marie Anthony
