The Quills

WNBC's Jane Hanson

The nominees are in for the new Quill Awards, which celebrates excellence in literature in categories such as Book Of The Year to Best Debut Author. The reading public also gets to cast their vote for these awards that will be broadcast on NBC on October 22, 2005 (check local listings for exact times).

You can also catch the interview in which Gerry Byrne, the founder and chairman of The Quill Awards discusses its origins with news anchor Jane Hanson of WNBC in New York.

My personal pick for this year? The Mermaid's Chair by Sue Monk Kidd.

In any case, good luck to all the nominees, and a big thanks to the Quills and those behind it, who have made celebrating the "written word" an event.

Good Thursday, all. Peace.
