Austinite Lawrence Wright Wins Pulitzer for Nonfiction

Austin author Lawrence Wright won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction with his book, The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11. Wright apparently also plays in a local blues band called WhoDo. He has a copy of an Austin-American Statesman article about the book from August 6th, 2006 on his web site.

Congratulations also to fellow Texan, Ornette Coleman (born in Ft. Worth), who won for his recent release, Sound Grammar.
