The award (in the general non-fiction category) recognizes the best works by a Northern California author published in 2018.
The event draws an enthusiastic audience to celebrate northern California books and writers. During the ceremony, organizers will acknowledge each nominated book, and ask the winner in each category to speak briefly and read for three minutes. You should come prepared to read for three minutes if they announce you as the winner.
