CBA Libris Awards 2011

I had an absolute blast at this year's CBA Libris Awards.

Following the successful format used last year, this year's event (which took place during the CBA National Conference in Toronto) included a reception and dinner, hosted by Kevin Graff and Bob Phibbs, who injected a good deal of fun play and humour into the evening's celebration.

Some amazing photos were taken of the evening, so I put them together to some lively up-beat music from the talented Kevin MacLeod (I use a sample of one of his eerie bits of noir music for my podcast Prelude To A Scream) - This way, people who were there can re-live the fun of the evening in about 6 minutes, and those who weren't there can get a sense of the fun that happened when the book industry came together to celebrate one another and the difference that books and book people make in the cultural landscape of Canada.

The video link is here, and here is the press release with the official winner announcement.
