Due to unforeseen circumstances, there will not be a Gala this year. The winners will be announced on this site in early June. At that time, the short list for next year’s award will also be announced.

Stay tuned!

 

Support BC authors, illustrators… and booksellers!

The Chocolate Lily Book Awards’ purpose is to celebrate our local authors and illustrators.  We also hope you will join us in supporting our local booksellers.  Wherever and whenever possible, we encourage our readers to find their Chocolate Lily books at their local bookstore.  Vancouver Kidsbooks has reciprocated with their support for us: every Chocolate Lily book you buy at Kidsbooks will benefit our awards program.

Click here to buy your books at Vancouver Kidsbooks and specify that you are registered with the Chocolate Lily program.
