Echard Wins the 2009 Labarge Prize for Printing the Middle Ages

The Canadian Society of Medievalists has selected Siân Echard to receive the 2009 Margaret Wade Labarge Prize for her book, Printing the Middle Ages. The prize committee wrote:

Siân Echard has written an admirable work of mature scholarship. Her erudition shines through on every page, but the book is nonetheless very accessible and will reach a broad audience. Echard is especially clear on the twisted partisan and commercial routes by which medieval texts reached us.

Last year's Labarge Prize went to Penn Press author Fiona Griffiths.
