Katie Davis, author of the New York Times best-selling book Kisses from Katie (Howard Books), has been named one of eight semi-finalists in Glamour magazine's "Women of the Year Readers' Choice Award."
"Katie's devout commitment to Christ and her zeal for mission work is just the type of example young women in America need," said Jonathan Merkh, publisher of Howard Books. "While Katie herself may not want or need this award, I think it would benefit our culture for her to be named Glamour's Readers' Choice Winner. I want everyone to vote."
Davis was recently featured in People magazine, spotlighting Kisses from Katie, which details her ministry work in Uganda and her adoption of 13 girls from the East African country. Released in October 2011, the book debuted at No. 10 on the New York Times Paperback Nonfiction list for the week of Sept. 23.
