Poet is finalist for Ohioana award

Allison Pitinii Davis, a Boardman native, is a finalist in the poetry category in the 2018 Ohioana Book Awards, for her book “Line Study of a Motel Clerk” (Baobab Press).

First given in 1942, the awards are the second-oldest state literary prizes in the nation and honor outstanding works by Ohio authors in five categories: Fiction, Poetry, Juvenile Literature, Middle Grade/Young Adult Literature, and Nonfiction. The sixth category, About Ohio/Ohioan, may also include books by non-Ohio authors.

Ohioana will profile all the finalists in the coming weeks. Beginning May 21, it will present “30 Books, 30 Days,” a special feature on its Facebook page in which one finalist will be highlighted each weekday through June 29.

Winners will be announced in July, and the 2018 Ohioana Book Awards will be presented at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus on Oct. 18.

The other finalists in the Poetry category are:

Ruth Awad, “Set to Music a Wildfire” (University of Southern Indiana Press); Kathy Fagan, “Sycamore” (Milkweed Editions): Sarah Rose Nordgren, “Darwin’s Mother” (University of Pittsburgh Press); and Maggie Smith, “Good Bones” (Tupelo Press).
