The book, a project of the Brattleboro Words Project, was designed by James Brisson, edited by Michael Fleming, with Stephanie Greene serving as art editor. It was printed by Howard Printing Inc. in Brattleboro. Over 30 local writers and artists contributed.
The award will be presented at The Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., at an event from 5 to 7:45 p.m. June 24.
“'Print Town' has been a labor of love for all who participated. It was well written, well edited, and offered a sumptuous assortment of pertinent and exciting images. 'Print Town' was a book designer’s dream come true to work on,” Brisson said.
