Hertzberg, Marx, Wood Score Award Nominations

The list of finalists for this year's National Magazine Awards includes three with Harvard connections.

The American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) announced the finalists for the 2009 National Magazine Awards this week, and the list includes some names that will be familiar to Harvard Magazine readers.

Patricia Marx ’75 was profiled in our March-April 2008 issue, and ASME also took notice of her New Yorker columns on shopping, nominating her in the "leisure interests" category.

We profiled Hendrik Hertzberg ’65 back in 2003; three of his columns from the New Yorker's Talk of the Town section won him award consideration in the "columns and commentary" category.

Also writing for the New Yorker, James Wood, professor of the practice of literary criticism in Harvard's English department, garnered a nomination for three of his articles in the "reviews and criticism" category.
