2011 Florida Library Association Conference
For four years now the Florida Book Awards has been lucky to be included in the annual Florida Library Association (FLA) Conference, one of the partner organizations that sponsors the awards. The 2011 FLA Conference honored recipients of this year’s Florida Book Awards by hosting a reading series, followed by a book signing and banquet on May 5th, 2011 in Orlando, Florida. Thanks to all who attended and especially to our winning authors who were able to join us in Orlando as we honored their literary achievements.
In between the conference events, the FBA winners were also interviewed about their winning books by WFSU. These brief interviews will be airing between programs on the Florida Channel. Look for the 2010 FBA winners on your local television station!
Thanks again to all who sponsored, participated, or assisted with the FLA conference, including the Orlando Public Library, who hosted an event during the conference where several medal winners also gave short readings. Also, a special thanks to Jessica Critten who is leaving the Florida Book Awards after years of dedicated service and commitment to the competition.
Florida Book Awards loves being a part of the annual FLA Conference, and we look forward to many more years in partnership!
