Congratulations to Island Author Carol Little: novel nominated for Montaigne Medal


Writer Carol Little just received news that her novel “Hide Your Life Away” has been nominated for the Montaigne Medal.

The Eric Hoffer Award for Books presents the Montaigne Medal annually to the most thought-provoking title(s). These are books that either illuminate, progress, or redirect thought. The Montaigne Medal is given in honor of the great French philosopher Michel de Montaigne, who influenced people such as William Shakespeare, René Descartes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Eric Hoffer.

“Hide Your Life Away,” described as “a satirical, fast food, weekend romp that might just end up with a trip down the aisle,” was released in Sept. 2008. Critics use such terms as “well-written, diverting, informative and artful,” to describe the novel, which is available at Island bookstores and at the library.
