Moore receives N.C. Literature Award
Lenard D. Moore of Raleigh recently received the 2014 N.C. Literature Award. The awards have been given annually since 1964 to citizens who have distinguished themselves and obtained distinctions for notable accomplishments in public service, science, literature and fine arts. It is the highest honor the N.C. governor can bestow in this field. Moore, an associate professor at the University of Mount Olive, has written more than 25 forms of poetry, drama, essays and literary criticism, and has been writing and publishing haiku for over 30 years. He is the first African-American to be elected as president of the Haiku Society of America.
