About the event

To  encourage and recognize exemplary national and local writers, the  Friends of the Pikes Peak Library District presents two awards at an annual luncheon, its signature event.

The Frank Waters Award celebrates its namesake’s love of the American West. The $2,000 award  is given to a writer who strives to foster literary excellence and a  recognition of the people, culture and landscape of the American West. This year's honoree is Mark Lee Gardner, a local author with a national reputation, and a lifelong historian whose fascination with the American West has inspired his many books.

The Golden Quill Award is a $1,000 prize given for literary achievement by an outstanding local  author, illustrator, photographer or publication. Its recipient often is  also engaged in fostering literacy in the community. This year's honoree is Donna Guthrie, an esteemed children’s book author, playwright, documentary filmmaker and podcaster.
