Concord, N.H. (AP) Former concord monitor photographer Preston Gannaway was on her way to a new job in Colorado when she found out she had won this year's pulitzer prize in feature photography.
Gannaway won the award for documenting how the family of maternity nurse Carolynne St. Pierre coped with her terminal illness.
St. Pierre died at home last year.
Gannaway is about to start working for the Rocky Mountain News.
