Nevada City author Josh Weil won a prestigious California Book Award with his short story collection “The Age of Perpetual Light.” His book won in the fiction category.
The awards ceremony is June 12 at San Francisco’s Commonwealth Club. It is a coup for our region at the same time it is been designated a statewide Cultural District.

Each year, a select jury considers hundreds of books from around the state in search of the very best in literary achievement.” More details here:
