The 2013 VCU Cabell First Novelist Award contest is underway! Help to select the finalists by checking out one of the books on the shelf next to the Circulation Desk in James Branch Cabell Library and returning a completed review form by March 30. New contest books flooded in during January. The Department of English, which administers the annual contest, reports a record number of entries--127. That's a lot of reading and reviewing before the winner is selected.
