Recent Asian/Asian American literary award winners

I'm probably missing a few, but some recent names that have come up include:
  • Marie Myung-Ok Lee, 2006 Richard J. Margolis Award from the Blue Mountain Center.
  • Angie Chuang, creative non-fiction writer, was a recipient of a 2006 Oregon Literary Fellowship.
  • Sarah Liu, non-fiction writer, recipient of a Bellvue Literary Review Prize for "Bones of Jade, Soul of Ice."
  • Haruki Murakami won the Kiriyama Prize in fiction for Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman.

Poets and Writers Magazine also just did a feature profiling Frances Hwang, author of Transparency: Stories from Black Bay Books, and Rishi Reddi, author of Karma and Other Stories from Ecco.
