Martha Ezzard wins Georgia Author of the Year!
Almost 140 authors were nominated for this year's awards given by the Georgia Writers' Association in 11 different categories. Ezzard's book, The Second Bud, was the winner for the Memoirs category at the Saturday, June 8 annual dinner and awards ceremony.
"Opening Martha Ezzard's The Second Bud is like popping the cork on a bottle of fine wine: the more you sip, the gooder it gets. Forget all the glamorous, foo-foo crap you've ever heard about owning a vineyard; growing wine is hard work and so are the challenges the author and her husband face. So lush is Martha's telling that the reader is caught up in the fragrant, beautiful landscape of the vineyard without ever having set foot on the soil." Nancy Stephan, Memoir/Autobiography Judge
While traveling with Martha from Denver, Colorado to Atlanta and finally full-time to Tiger, be prepared for detours that will yank your heart strings and strike your funny bone... John Shivers, Georgia Mountain Laurel, October 2014
Read the complete review here on pages 16-17.
"In grape growing a second bud sometimes comes along to replace a first that has fallen victim to late spring frosts. As a metaphor for survival, perseverance and unexpected growth, it's pretty darned good. As the title of Martha Ezzard's book, it's perfect." Jill Vejnoska, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
