Annual People's Choice Awards


The Library of Virginia established the People’s Choice Awards in 2004 to give readers an opportunity to share their enthusiasm for favorite works by Virginia authors and on Virginia topics. Finalists for the People’s Choice Awards are selected from the books nominated for the annual Library of Virginia Literary Awards. The People’s Choice winners are selected by readers through a secure online voting portal on the Library’s website.

Online voting for the 2018 People’s Choice Awards closed on July 15th. The winners will be announced at the Library of Virginia Literary Awards Celebration on October 20, 2018.

The 2017 winners for the People’s Choice Awards were The Stargazer’s Sister by Carrie Brown for the fiction category and Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly in the nonfiction category.
