Local author Greg Herren wins literary award

Posted By on Mon, Jun 9, 2008 at 5:25 PM

New Orleans writer Greg Herren received a Lambda Literary Award last week for his latest novel, Murder in the rue Chartres.

Herren, the author of six New Orleans mysteries including Bourbon Street Blues, Jackson Square Jazz, and Murder in the rue Dauphine, won for Best Men's Mystery. At the time of the book's publication, Publishers Weekly praised it and its author, saying "Herron, a loyal New Orleans resident, paints a brilliant portrait of the recovering city, including insights into its tight-knit gay community."

The Lambda Literary Awards are presented by the Lambda Literary Foundation, which describes itself as "the country’s leading organization for LGBT literature."
