4/25/1992 Nancy Pickard gives Agatha an I.O.U.
April 25, 1992. On this date Nancy Pickard's novel I.O.U. won the Agatha Award for best novel. The Agatha is given at the Malice Domestic conference for best traditional mystery. Sometimes the word cozy is invoked.
Pickard has also won, Shamus, Anthony and Macavity Awards, being the only author to score all four. Impressive.
