Winner Description: 
for The Shadows of Ghadames by Joëlle Stolz, translated from the French by Catherine Temerson
Winner Blurb: 

“The Shadows of Ghadames” paints a vivid picture of a young woman’s coming of age in 19th-century Libya, as 11-year-old Malika questions the restrictions she encounters as she approaches marriageable age.  When the women of her family secretly aid a young outcast, Malika gains a new understanding of the strength of the women of Ghadames, whose seclusion from the men’s world of the streets has created a powerful all-female community that extends across the rooftops of the city.
