Message from Tara FitzGerald, 2016 Winner, Waterston Desert Writing Prize

"I just wanted to say once again how incredibly grateful I am to you and the members of the Waterston Desert Writing Prize committee for recognizing my work this year. It's really an amazing honor and so encouraging to me as I push ahead with working on my Aral Sea book. I enjoyed the reception at the High Desert Museum so much and I was so touched by the kind and wonderful introduction you gave me."
