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 WeeklySeptember 9, 2015.
