2019 QUILL AWARD RECIPIENTS ANNOUNCED!
Gala Planned for October 19, 2019
Missouri Writers Hall of Fame is pleased to honor three accomplished writers with the 2019 Quill Award.
Congratulations to Nancy Allen, Wayne Glenn and Steve Yates.
Nancy Allen is the author of the Ozarks Mystery Series, including Code of the Hills, A Killing at the Creek, and The Wages of Sin, featuring fictional Ozarks prosecutor, Elsie Arnold.
Aside from his radio show, Remember When, where he is known as “The Old Record Collector,” Wayne Glenn has written numerous books about the Ozarks and is considered by many an authority on the area.
Steve Yates grew up in Springfield, MO and his writing reflects a deep understanding and love for the area in and around his hometown. Yates received a Juniper prize for Some Kind of Love: Stories and the Knickerbocker prize for Sandy and Wayne: a novella. His most recent novel, The Legend of the Albino Farm, explores the inescapable destruction caused by a local urban myth.
The three will be honored the evening of Saturday, October 19, 2019 at Missouri State University’s Meyer Library.
