Florida Book Awards
Sharon Koskoff has won the Silver Medal for the Florida Book Awards 2018 for her second book, Murals of the Palm Beaches, Arcadia Publishing.
The 13th annual competition is now complete and the Florida Book Awards has announced winners for books published in 2018. More than 200 eligible publications were submitted across 11 categories of competition.
The Florida Book Awards, coordinated by the Florida State University Libraries, is the nation’s most comprehensive state book awards program. It was established in 2006 to celebrate the best Florida literature. Authors must be full-time Florida residents, except in the Florida nonfiction and visual arts categories, where the subject matter must focus on Florida.
Winning books and their authors will be showcased in the summer 2019 issue of FORUM, the statewide magazine of the Florida Humanities Council. Copies of all award-winning books will also be put on permanent public display in the Florida Governor’s Mansion library and in Florida State University’s Strozier Library.
Koskoff will be in Tallahassee to join other winning authors from across the state and be honored April 11 at the Abitz Family Dinner, the annual awards banquet, at the Mission San Luis in Tallahassee and again at the Authors Breakfast on April 12.
In Palm Beaches County, Koskoff will celebrate by leading a Book Signing and Walking Tour entitled Landmarks in Lake Worth on May 4, 2019. She will highlight Art Deco buildings found in her first book, Art Deco of the Palm Beaches, as well as public murals seen in her award-winning second book.
