Virginia Literary Awards
@ your library®
The Library of Virginia Literary Awards are presented each year for the best books by a Virginia author in the fields of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry (and, in the case of nonfiction, also by any author about a Virginia subject). A special award is also given each year for lifetime achievement in any literary field. The finalists and winners for the awards are selected by an independent panel of judges. Other authors are honored through the People’s Choice Awards, the Whitney and Scott Cardozo Award for Children’s Literature, and the Carole Weinstein Poetry Prize.
Dr. Virginia Cherry, Library Director of Richard Bland College Library, attended the 14th Annual Library of Virginia Awards program at the Library of Virginia on October 15, 2011. As a Page Turner member, Dr. Cherry supports this annual event honoring Virginia's authors.
