Ray Wallace, Jr., author of ESSEX MEMORIES & BEYOND, received notice from the Library of Virginia, that his book has been nominated in the non-fiction category for the 18th annual Library of Virginia Literary Award, 2015.

Wallace, who writes the Rays Raws blog, reminisces: “Even very young, I began to realize that many well-worn traditions were beginning to wane…the most difficult part for me was to write honestly from a vantage point of today’s history lessons.”
