At Heartland's Book Awards Celebration, we celebrate the winners of Midwest Booksellers Choice Awards; Great Lakes, Great Reads; and the Voice of the Heartland. It's a cocktail event with a festive appeal. There will be a cash bar with the room set in rounds and snacks at each table.
An emcee will introduce the award-winning authors, and after the remarks, we will host a book signing.
4:00-5:00 pm: Book Awards Celebration takes place in Gold
Please ask your author to prepare acceptance remarks limited to 5 minutes. Successful remarks include thanks for publishers, booksellers, and family/friends; stories about the book; anecdotes from visits to indie bookstores; etc. We'll have a raised podium and a microphone at the front of the room for speakers' use.
5:00-6:30 pm: Opening Reception takes place in Whitehall
Award-winning authors join 20 additional authors at the opening reception in Whitehall to sign books for bookseller attendees
