Dr. Rusty Bittermann wins Atlantic Book Award for Historical Writing

Kudos to Professor Bittermann whose Sailor’s Hope: The Life and Times of William Cooper, Agrarian Radical in an Age of Revolution was awarded this year’s Democracy 250 Atlantic Book Award for Historical Writing.

Through this prize, the Atlantic Book Awards wish to “recognize an author (or authors) who excels at illuminating the Atlantic region’s vibrant history and acknowledges the work of the publisher who makes the book available.”

Earlier in the month, Dr. Bittermann had been asked to give a lecture on his book at the Province House in Charlottetown, PEI, as his work had also received the Publication of the Year Award from the Prince Edward Island Museum and Heritage Foundation.
