Best Local Author/Poet: TIE: Sarah Bird, Spike Gillespie

Novelist Sarah Bird (The Yakota Officers Club, The Boyfriend School, Alamo House, The Mommy Club and her latest book, The Flamingo Academy) wins over her readers with hilarity and plots that take place in notorious Austin and Central Texas landmarks. Spike Gillespie also hits audiences hard in the funny bone, taking jabs at herself and turning rage into cathartic read in her works All the Wrong Men and One Perfect Boy, Surrender (But Don't Givev Yourself Away), and Pissed Off: On Women and Anger.
