Night Train Red Dust - NEMBA Award
The 27th Annual North East Minnesota Book Awards was on May 21, 2015. Night Train Red Dust received recognition!
The judges wrote: "Sheila Packa’s newest collection of poetry is filled with three-dimensional images of the variety and complexity of life on Minnesota’s Iron Range during the middle years of the twentieth century. Like the iron itself, these poems 'bleed with rust/ and come with their own rules.'"
