McCracken wins $20,000 Story Prize

Last year, I had the pleasure of talking with and writing about Elizabeth McCracken, whose latest book is “Thunderstruck & Other Stories.” I thought that the teacher at UT’s New Writers Project and the Michener Center wrote one of last year’s best books.

On Wednesday night, McCracken won the $20,000 Story Prize at a ceremony in New York. So congrats to one of Austin’s best writers.

Here’s a link to the story I wrote. You can go here
