Jen Hirt’s collection of essays, Hear Me Ohio, has won the 2020 Silver prize from Foreword Reviews in the category of Adult Nonfiction, Essays. Foreword writes: “Hear Me Ohio is a collection of essays about leaving Ohio while always looking back at it from places as far and different as Idaho, to the familiar forest of an arboretum in Kentucky, to the Pennsylvania riverbanks of the Susquehanna River. Hirt writes about loss and discovery, but also horseradish and hold-ups, unicorns and spiders, chestnuts and dobsonflies, dogs and kayaks.”

Dedicated to the art of book reviewing, Foreword Reviews focusses on serving booksellers, libraries, and readers with news of the best books from independent presses.
