2010 Events – Part 2
As we put together the last minute arrangements for our upcoming author events, we thought we’d give you another re-cap of the Florida Heritage Awards Ceremony that took place last month, another well-attended event.
Each of our Gold Medal winning authors received their awards and received congratulations from Secretary of State Kurt Browning and Governor Rick Scott.
While many authors were in attendance, some were unable to attend. FBA’s own Dr. Wayne Wiegand, who accepted the absentee awards on the authors’ behalf, was able to participate in an exciting photo opportunity with the new governor.
Next week, the Florida Book Awards will celebrate the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medal winners at the Florida Library Association’s Annual Conference, which will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel in Orlando. Our winning authors will be reading and signing copies of their award-winning books to be followed by a banquet on May 5th. More information about the event can be found here: http://www.flalib.org/conference_2011.php
We look forward to celebrating our winning authors and welcome all Florida readers to attend these events.
