Whitney Awards Auction
For anyone who's unfamiliar with the Whitney Awards, the awards were instituted last year to recognize excellence in fiction by LDS authors. If you've read a book this year by an LDS author that you think deserves a Whitney Award, you can nominate the book at Whitney Awards. It is limited to fiction, but the book can be for the LDS or national market as long as the author is LDS.
The Whitney Awards Committee is holding a silent auction to raise funds. If you click on the link in my sidebar, it'll take you to the auction and you can see what's available. I've already been outbid on some items. Check it out.
I attended the 2008 Whitney Awards gala and it was a blast. It was so much fun seeing so many authors and then watching those who won accept their awards.
