Calgary Public Library Foundation Literary Awards 2009

Please join us for the 2009 Calgary Public Library Foundation Literary Awards. The evening begins with a cocktail reception surrounded by specially-produced art interpreting books, reading and literacy. Many of these unique sculptures, paintings, and artworks will be available for sale, benefiting both the artist and the Foundation.

Emmy and Grammy Award winning actor and author LeVar Burton will be the keynote address. LeVar played Kunta Kinte in the landmark mini-series "Roots," Geordi La Forge in "Star Trek: The Next Generation," and was the host of "Reading Rainbow" for 25 years.

The evening will cap off with the Literary Awards, recognizing the best in Alberta's literary community. Prizes will be given for adult fiction, adult non-fiction, child or teen book, and illustration.
