Presenting a Pair of Pinckleys

New York authors Megan Abbott and Sarah St. Vincent have been named as recipients of the 2019 Pinckley Prizes for Crime Fiction, given out by the Women’s National Book Association of New Orleans.

Abbott, a onetime Rap Sheet contributor whose acclaimed novels include Give Me Your Hand (2018), Dare Me (2012), and Bury Me Deep (2009), is the winner of this year’s Pinckley Prize for Distinguished Body of Work. Meanwhile, St. Vincent has won the Pinckley Prize for Debut Novel for Ways to Hide in Winter (Melville House).

The annual Pinckley Prizes are named in memory of Diana Pinckley, a longtime crime-fiction columnist for the New Orleans Times-Picayune newspaper. Abbott and St. Vincent will receive their prizes on October 10 at the Louisiana Humanities Center in New Orleans.
