2024 Awards Celebration

27th Anniversary Virginia Literary Awards Celebration September 21, 2024

The annual awards—our way of thanking the Virginia authors whose works have enriched our lives and filled our libraries—are presented to outstanding Virginia authors in the areas of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. (The nonfiction category includes any author whose book is on a Virginia subject.) Also presented are the People's Choice Awards for fiction and nonfiction, the Children's Virginia Literary Award and the Art in Literature: The Mary Lynn Kotz Award.

The winners of these juried awards, who receive a cash prize and an engraved crystal book, will be announced at the Library's 27th Annual Literary Awards Celebration on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2024, hosted by best-selling Virginia author Adriana Trigiani. This event is presented by Dominion Energy.
