When we decided to acknowledge the authors who touch our souls so profoundly with a special award, the look and feel of the memento was not taken lightly. It had to express the essence of our club as readers and as proud Black women. We give two major awards annually: Author of the Year and New Author of the Year.
Each award is created using our logo as inspiration. Master pottery artist Orah-el creates our Author of the Year award and glass artist Ken Wright creates the New Author of the Year award.
