Also awarded are the People’s Choice Awards, cosponsored by the Library of Virginia and the James River Writers Association, a nonprofit Richmond writers’ organization. Two previously-announced awards were the Whitney and Scott Cardozo Award for Children’s Literature, and the Library of Virginia Lifetime Achievement Award.
