2012 Whitney Award Finalists

What are the Whitneys?
The Whitneys are an awards program for novels written by LDS authors. Elder Orson F. Whitney, an early apostle in the LDS church, prophesied “We will yet have Miltons and Shakespeares of our own.” It is our hope to be a part of that journey toward excellence by honoring the LDS writers also working toward that goal.

(P.S. Want to meet some of these authors?? Register for LDStorymakers May 10 & 11 TODAY. You'll love it.The keynote speaker is Anne Perry and you can sign up just to listen to her.) 
(P.S.S Since there is a Show Your Love contest for the Storymakers, I'm going to have my own. I'm going to give away a few books that are Whitney Finalists starting Monday.)
