"The Remnants of War" wins 2017 Solas Awards Grand Prize

Wow--I am thrilled to learn that my essay "The Remnants of War: A Meditation on Peleliu" earned Grand Prize Bronze in this year's Solas Awards for Best Travel Writing. The essay was originally published on Longreads, one of my favorite longform journalism sites, and selected as a Longreads Exclusive essay by editors Julia Wick & Mark Armstrong. The essay will also appear as the Traveler's Tale Editors’ Choice on Monday, March 27th, as well as the feature story on BestTravelWriting.com.

Thank you, Traveler's Tales, for this great honor!
