Library Partners Press names awards in honor of O'Day and Coates

Library Partners Press, an imprint of Wake Forest’s Digital Publishing Division, has named its inaugural literary awards the Gail O’Day Award and the David Coates Award.  O’Day and Coates were distinguished members of the University’s academic community before their deaths in 2018.

The Gail O’Day Award for Poetry recognizes outstanding achievements in poetry. “Throughout her career, Gail O’Day relied on poetry–individual poems and collections alike–to guide her teaching, sermons, and reading life,” according to a Literary Partners Press announcement.  O’Day, professor of New Testament and preaching, served as dean of the School of Divinity from 2010 until June 30, 2018.  She died Sept. 22.

The David Coates Award for Non-Fiction honors outstanding achievements in non-fiction, including histories, memoir and creative non-fiction.  Coates “was an expert on American politics, economy and society, and he was a prolific scholar and author of books, articles, and blog posts on capitalism, immigration, and presidents,” according to the announcement.  At Wake Forest, he was Worrell Professor of Anglo-American Studies.  He died Aug. 7.

We are saddened to announce that David Coates, Worrell Professor of Anglo-American Studies, died today, August 7, in Asheville after an illness.

Dr. Coates joined Wake Forest’s faculty in 1999 after holding chairs at universities in England, where he was born and educated.  A U.S. and foreign policy expert, he was a prolific author of numerous books, articles and blog posts on politics, history and economics.  He was frequently interviewed by national and international news organizations on a wide range of topics, including liberal politics and elections.

We grieve Dr. Coates’ death and extend our condolences to his family and friends, as well as those at Wake Forest who had the opportunity to know him.

Information about a service for Dr. Coates will be announced to faculty, staff and students once his family has finalized arrangements.
