About the 2016 Award Dinner

The 2016 Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award culminated with a special day of festivities on October 29, 2016, at downtown Central Library. More than 300 people participated in free activities throughout the day, including book sales and signings, author lectures, workshops for aspiring writers and Q&A sessions with the Indiana Authors Award honorees.

That evening, more than 370 book lovers attended the Award Dinner to celebrate the winners and finalists of the eighth annual Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award. In addition to the excitement of announcing the Emerging Author winner, Sarah Gerkensmeyer, the evening featured a silent auction and speeches by Regional Author winner Philip Gulley and National Author winner Karen Joy Fowler. Children's Picture Book Author April Pulley Sayre was honored with the first-ever Genre Excellence Award.  Debby Knox served as emcee for the evening. In all, the Award Dinner raised more than $80,000 to support the programs of the Library and Library Foundation.
