Congratulations to the winners of the 2014 Whitney Awards! As usual, the Awards Gala was spectacular. A huge shout out to president Annette Lyon and her committee for coordinating such a massively huge project—from collecting and tallying nominees, tracking down and verifying that nominated books and authors qualify, cajoling volunteers to read through a huge number of nominees and narrow them down to the very best books, getting publishers to donate reading copies, and creating a fabulous gala experience. It was amazing!
