Victoria Book Prize Society
A Decade of Celebrating and Honouring Authors in the Victoria Area
Honouring Victoria's vibrant literary community and its renowned writers for 10 years, the Victoria Book Prize Society is pleased to announce the winning authors from the Capital Region for the 2013 City of Victoria Butler Book Prize for adult literature and the Bolen Books Children’s Book Prize. For further details please our press release here.
We had a wonderful gala celebration of books and authors and readers, here are some photos from the event.
2004 saw the first City of Victoria Butler Book Prize awarded; on October 16, 2013 we awarded the 10th prize! One of the most generous city prizes in the country, each year we present two $5000 cheques, one to the winning adult author and one to the winning Bolen Books Children’s Prize creator. A wealth of creative talent, a supportive city council, a literate and supportive community, active volunteers, and passionate readers. Welcome to the Victoria Book Prizes!
