Writer and illustrators to be honored at gala event
Author Services, Inc. and Galaxy Press will present the 38th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement Awards Gala, honoring 13 writers and 12 illustrators from around the world for their excellence in the genres of science fiction and fantasy.
The invitation-only event will be held on Friday, April 8, at the Taglyan Complex, 1201 Vine St. (at Lexington Avenue, the entrance for Valet Parking).
The Awards Banquet will start at 5 p.m. Members of the general public can watch the Awards Show streaming live from 7 – 9:30 p.m. at writersofthefuture.com.
“This year the theme for our awards show represents a dichotomy of pre-historical and futuristic worlds merged by magic. It is a fusion of pre-historic mammoth with an alien robot,” said Joni Labaqui, director of the contests for Author Services, Inc.
Celebrities who will be attending the event include Nancy Cartwright, Timothy Woodward Jr., Steven L. Sears, Kate Linder, Lee Purcell, Jade Pettyjohn, Natalie Burn, Neil Kaplan, Jeff Pomerantz, Jim Meskimen and Tamra Meskimen.
