Congratulations to Leona Theis, whose If Sylvie Had Nine Lives has won the 2021 High Plains Book Award for Short Stories!
The jury said, “If Sylvie Had Nine Lives by Leona Theis considers the lives and loves of Sylvie as if her life was a delta and ‘she might let the flow take her in a direction far from the current she was in now.’ These stories are an engaging series of “what ifs” in the life of one woman. If Sylvie Had Nine Lives reveals the wistfulness of all of the paths we haven’t taken.”
