Terry Kay receives Lifetime Achievement Award

The Georgia Writers Association presented Terry Kay with the Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the 47th annual Georgia Author of the Year Awards ceremony held on June 11th at the Kennesaw State University Center.  Kay spoke to a crowd of nearly 200 writers and guests, telling them: “My passion for many, many, many years has been to celebrate the writing done in this state. I have been dismayed that Georgia writers have not had the kind of acknowledgement that our neighboring states give their native writers. This occasion tonight does this – gives recognition to our native writers.”

Kay is the author of several popular novels including To Dance with the White Dog which became a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie starring Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn.  Mercer University Press published titles include The Book of Marie (the winner of the 2008 Georgia Author of the Year Award for best fiction ), Bogmeadow’s Wish, and The Greats of Cuttercane, a collection of stories due out this fall.
