    GONNERMAN WINS BERGER PRIZE

    Staff writer Jennifer Gonnerman has won the Mike Berger Prize for her article "Life on the Outside," which appeared in The Village Voice of December 26, 2000. The prize committee noted that the article reported on a seldom seen side of life in New York: a family coming to grips with the legacy of imprisonment. The 18,000-word piece followed Elaine Bartlett for a year after her release from Bedford Hills prison in Westchester County, where she had spent 16 years.

    This is the second consecutive year a Voice writer has won the Berger prize. Last year, it was won by former staff writer Guy Trebay. Trebay also won the Berger award in 1982.
