On Monday evening Literary Arts presented the 27 th Oregon Book Awards at Gerding Theater at the Armory 128 Northwest 11th Avenue Portland.
Each year, The Oregon Book Awards are presented to authors living in Oregon that have made outstanding contributions to the fields of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and young reader’s books.
Oregon Book Award was founded in 1987 by Brian Booth and Oregon Institute for Literary Arts. In 1993, Literary Arts, a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of Oregonians through language and literature, joined with the Oregon Institute for Literary Arts and continued to support and promote Oregon’s authors with the book awards and Oregon Literary Fellowships. Award winners are selected based solely on literary merit by out-of-state judges.
