About the 2012 Award Dinner:
The 2012 Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award culminated with a special day of festivities on September 29, 2012 at downtown Central Library. More than 400 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 375 book lovers attended the Award Dinner to celebrate the winners and finalists of the fourth annual Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award. In addition to the excitement of announcing the Emerging Author winner, Christopher Coake, the evening featured a silent auction, speeches by Regional Author winner Barbara Shoup and Lifetime Achievement honoree Dan Wakefield, and a keynote speech on the importance of libraries delivered by National Author winner John Green. WISH-TV’s Debby Knox served as emcee for the evening. In all, the Award Dinner raised more than $77,000 to support the programs of the Library and Library Foundation.
