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.

The 2020 winners for the People's Choice Awards were The Substitution Order by Martin Clark for the fiction category and Mary Ball Washington: The Untold Story of George Washington's Mother by Craig Shirly in the nonfiction category.

The 2021 People's Choice Award finalists will be announced in July. Check back here later this summer for more information.
