Please join us in honoring: Katherine Center, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, Annetra Piper and Roger Leslie, and one Reader's Choice Award. You can vote on your favorite local here. The final Reader’s Choice Award Winner will be announced during the red-carpet gala celebrating literary excellence at the historic Julia Ideson Library. The evening features a social meet and greet with the authors, book signings, specialty cocktails, gourmet dining, premium seating, and complimentary valet.
