Kevin Fenton's novel Merit Badges won the AWP Award for Fiction. It takes place in the fictional town of Minisapa, Minnesota, which has a strong resemblance to the real town of Winona, Minnesota. This novel is told from the perspective of four adoloscents growing up and finding their way through three decades together. It explores their friendships, the music that defines them, and how you can love and hate a place at the same time.
