Author Clive Cussler, whose adventure novels have landed on the New York Times bestseller list more than 20 times, and who made Dirk Pitt a thriller series legend, will accept the Colorado Authors’ League Lifetime Achievement Award at its annual awards banquet on Friday, May 8. Winners in 10 writing categories will be named in CAL’s 67th contest climax. A second special award, CAL’s Authors’ Advocate Award, will also be presented to two local literary women, Margaret “Maggie” Coval, executive director of Colorado Humanities, and Josephine Jones, director of programs and the Center for the Book for Colorado Humanities.
Adding still more star power to the awards banquet, Sandra Dallas is the author of 13 novels, two young reader books and ten works of non-fiction. She is a three-time winner of the Women Writing the West Willa Award. She has won both the National Cowboy Museum’s Wrangler Award and the Western Writers of America Spur Award twice, and in 2014 she was the recipient of the Eleanor Gheres Award from the Denver Public Library and the Frank Waters Award from the Pikes Peak Library District.
