Through the annual Library of Virginia Literary Awards, the Library recognizes Virginia authors in the categories of fiction and poetry, as well as nonfiction authors for works about a Virginia subject. The Library established the People’s Choice Awards in 2004 to give readers an opportunity to share their enthusiasm for favorite works by Virginia authors and about Virginia themes. Finalists are selected from the works nominated for the fiction and nonfiction categories. Winners are chosen by votes from the public.
To vote, please select one work in each category. You may vote one time for each valid e-mail address. Voting will be open until August 31, 2022. The awards will be presented at the 25th Annual Library of Virginia Literary Awards Virtual Celebration on Saturday, October 15, 2022.
