Title: The Whitney Awards
Post by: dyany on February 12, 2018, 03:10:54 pm
In case you don't know, the Whitney Awards are a specific set of writing awards for LDS authors.  The finalists came out today and can be found here: http://whitneyawards.com/2017-finalists/ (http://whitneyawards.com/2017-finalists/) (sorry the page loads really slow). 
One of the cool things about the awards is that anyone can nominate a book, then the 5 books with the most nominations get into the semi-finals, then finals.  The awards are presented at the Whitney awards gala in Provo  at the end of Storymakers Conference (early May). 

So if any of you are looking for good reads by LDS authors, or have an LDS author whose book you ADORE, that's a great resource!

This is cool to know, Dyany. With a scarcity of full-service LDS bookstores or other resources where I live, it isnít always easy to find good LDS writing. Seagull has been gone from Oakland for years & the nearest Deseret is in Sacramento.

Youíre right, the page is slow (zzzz), but now I have the link to use anytime.

Yeah, almost all of these you can get on Amazon.
