One of the winners of the Thirty-Fourth Annual American Book Awards is Will Alexander's Singing in Magnetic Hoofbeat published by Essay Press, of which Writing Department Associate Professor Catherine Taylor is a Founding Editor.

Of the book's author, Will Alexander, the poet Haryette Mullen writes, "His literary influences connect him to an international avant-garde, just as his experience as an African American connects him to a black diaspora, and to the political struggles of Third World people."
