Martin Clark is a People’s Choice Fiction Award finalist for “The Substitution Order” during the Library of Virginia’s 17th annual People’s Choice Awards.
Selected by input from Virginia librarians and independent booksellers, the finalists represent the most-requested titles by Virginia authors in fiction and nonfiction published in the past year.
The winners are selected by votes from the public that were collected in July and August for the five finalists in each category.
In addition to Clark, other finalists for the People’s Choice Awards are Bruce Holsinger, “The Gifted School.” Angie Kim, “Miracle Creek,” Tosca Lee, “The Line Between” and Sonja Yoerg, “True Places.”
Nonfiction books on a Virginia subject are also eligible.
The Library of Virginia Literary Awards will be celebrated virtually this year with a week of author conversations and special events beginning Tuesday, October 13.
The winners of each category will be announced at a virtual event on Saturday, October 17, at the 23rd Annual Library of Virginia Literary Awards Celebration presented by Dominion Energy. Each winner will receive an engraved crystal book and a monetary prize of $2,500.
Virtual events begin at 6 p.m. and are accessible to the public, free of charge, through the Library of Virginia’s Facebook (Facebook.com/LibraryofVA) and YouTube (Youtube.com/LibraryofVA) pages.
