A Literary Red Carpet
NBC has announced the launch of the annual Quills, an Oscar-type awards show dedicated to books where winners are chosen by the general public. The inaugural event, which promises an author-packed evening, will be broadcast on October 22 on NBC during prime time.
You can vote for nominees in categoreies such as best audiobook, general fiction, mystery/thriller, etc. until September 15.
The Boston Globe ruminates on whether the awards are relevant at all, since they seem to boost books and writers that are on the bestseller lists, ignoring lesser-known writers, but we say it's about time.
