Anne Boyer, author of “Garments Against Women,” published by Boise State University’s Ahsahta Press, has received a $50,000 Whiting Award, presented by the Whiting Foundation to emerging writers.

Boyer’s work, read the press release announcing the winners, “unsettles all the familiar shapes of memoir and poetry to build a new city, one where worn ideas of labor and creativity are a monument toppled in the square.”

The Whiting Foundation awarded 10 awards in 2018. The foundation honored winners at a ceremony in New York City with a keynote by Nobel Prize laureate Toni Morrison.
