25th Anniversary of the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame

coffmanSpecial Collections has been involved in several ways with preparations for the gala event on November 8th, inducting William A. Douglass into the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame, honoring the Silver Pen winners Elizabeth Raymond and Claire Vay Watkins, and celebrating the first 25 years of the Hall of Fame. Due to a large response, the event itself has been moved to the Raggio Building, but a special exhibit featuring some of the Hall of Fame authors and their works is located in the Whittemore Gallery on the first floor of the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center. Special Collections also contributed photographs and biographical information to a commemorative booklet that will be available at the event. A Special Collections intern, Amelia Thibault, has been updated the bibliographies for Hall of Fame writers. Photo from the Virginia Coffman papers in Special Collections.
