This year we have an unprecedented 72 books with 10 book categories in our third annual Bisexual Book Awards. By comparison, last year we had 60 books and six book categories. “We are thrilled the Bisexual Book Awards continues to grow every year," says Sheela Lambert, Director of the Bi Writers Association. “By providing more bisexual categories, we have been attracting more bisexual books than any other awards. It’s always been the goal of BWA to increase awareness of bisexual books, to inspire authors to write more bi-themed books and to encourage more publishers to publish them. Since we launched our Bisexual Book Awards we have had the opportunity to reward authors and publishers for their efforts, says Lambert.”
Winners will be announced at the Bisexual Book Awards Ceremony on Sat May 30, following our annual reading and multi-arts celebration of bisexual writing, to be held in New York City at Westbeth, in the West Village at 55 Bethune St., corner Washington 6:30-10pm, followed by an afterparty, location TBA. Join one of our email lists, keep checking the Bi Writers Association website, follow us on Facebook or Twitter for program details and updates.
