REXBURG, IDAHO -- Recently, Jack Harrell, LDS writer and member of
the English Department at Ricks College, received the $1,000 Marilyn
Brown Award from the Association for Mormon Letters. The award is
for his unpublished novel, "Every Knee Shall Bow," the story of a
young man who finds his way back to God after life as a prodigal.
The Marilyn Brown Award was established to help further the careers
of LDS novelists who are struggling to find a market and an audience
for their work.
The Marilyn Brown Novel Award is given out every two years. The next
award will be in February 2002.
