The Utah Book Award!
The Utah Center for the Book, in conjunction with Utah Humanities and the Salt Lake City Public Library, has given The Year of Living Virtuously (Weekends Off) the 2015 Utah Book Award in Non-Fiction.
Salt Lake City Weekly Readers choose The Year of Living Virtuously (Weekends Off) as Nonfiction Book of the Year.
“Author and visual artist Teresa Jordan set to herself a unique task: a year of meditation on virtues such as temperance, moderation, cleanliness, chastity and humility in the form of an online diary, taking the weekends off for a few vices. The result, however, was far from an uptight series of lectures on right living. Instead, the funny, deeply personal essays crafted by Jordan offered insight into the way we think about virtues, and how they manifest themselves in our lives in ways we don’t always expect.” –Salt Lake City Weekly, September 9, 2015.

The Year Wins Eric Hoffer Grand Prize
The Year of Living Virtuously (Weekends Off) has won the Eric Hoffer Grand Prize, selected from some 1200 nominees in nearly 20 categories. Earlier, it won an Eric Hoffer Da Vinci Eye Award for cover art. The cover features one of Teresa’s “Chicken’s from the Dark Side.” Great credit is due to Counterpoint Press, and especially to cover designer Natalya Balnova.
Eric Hoffer was a longshoreman turned moral and social philosopher, best known for The True Believer, which grew out of his concern over the rise of totalitarian governments.
Other winners of the 2015 Da Vinci Eye Award are: Artist Spaces, Tina Freeman and Morgan Molthrop, University of LA at Lafayette Press; Beautiful Evil Winter, Kelly K. Lavender; Folly Beach Dances, Sheree K. Nielsen & Russell A. Nielsen, Ocean Spirit Photography; The Family Cannon, Halina Duraj, Augury Books; and Tweeting da Vinci, Ann C. Pizzorusso, Da Vinci Press.
