Donna Drew Sawyer’s PROVENANCE won the 2017 Maryland Writers’ Association Book Award for historical fiction at the Maryland Writers’ Annual Conference in Annapolis, Maryland on Saturday, March 25.
In PROVENANCE (Creative Cache), Donna Drew Sawyer tells the story of three generations of an African-American family on a quest to find equality and opportunity. PROVENANCE intertwines fictional and real characters and events to create a sweeping historical saga about love, betrayal, tragedy, triumph, passion, privilege and the universal desire for acceptance — regardless of who you are or where you’re from.
PROVENANCE was a finalist for the 2016 Phillis Wheatley Award for First Fiction and is the May 2017 reading selection for the 30 chapters of the Go On Girl! Book Club.
