LOLA WRITER GERALD HANNON RECEIVES A NATIONAL MAGAZINE AWARD NOMINATION
Last year Lola won National Magazine of The Year Award Honourable Mention. That was nice.
This year the super talented writer Gerald Hannon scored a nomination for his in-depth profile on the Power Plant's curator Philip Monk ("Monk-y Business" Lola 10). This is a seriously good read, and the only really revealing article ever written on The Monk. Congrats Gerald!
