Go On Girl! Book Club, one of the largest national reading organizations in the U.S. dedicated to supporting the work of authors of the African Diaspora, will host its 27th Annual Author Awards Dinner at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort.

The Annual Author Awards highlights activities for Go On Girl! Book Club members and guests and is an important part in carrying out the mission of the organization.

As Go On Girl! Book Club Co-Founder, Lynda Johnson explains, “Our author awards event is done to shine a light on the writers who tell our stories and keep black culture relevant on the literary landscape. We take the time to celebrate them and let them know we’re out there reading and discussing their work and that what they do matters.”

The organization will present top honors to its favorite 2018 authors. Bernice McFadden was voted 2018 Author of the Year for her gripping and intriguing novel, The Book of Harlan. Naima Coster was voted 2018 New Author of the Year for her breakout debut novel, Halsey Street.
