When Boswell hosted Brian Leahy Doyle for his book, Encore: The Renaissance of Wisconsin Opera Houses (we still have signed copies, by the way), I was blown away by how attractive the book was. It's a really interesting subject that appeals to performing arts patrons, Wisconsinalia fans, and preservationists alike. And now it turns out that the Theatre Historical Society of America agrees. They've just awarded Encore an award as Outstanding Book of the Year. Congrats to Professor Doyle on this honor. Visit their site here.
