Alabama Author Awards Program and Award Winners

Each year, the Authors Awards Committee selects Alabama authors to receive awards in the following categories:

  • Nonfiction
  • Fiction
  • Juvenile
  • Young Adult

Lifetime Achievement Award

There are many prolific Alabama authors who are deserving of special recognition beyond the standard annual Alabama Author Award.  These authors produce works that, while they might not be the most literary titles of their award period, are important and reflect the richness of Alabama’s literary landscape. For these authors, the Committee may honor them with a Lifetime Achievement Award. This award will be bestowed upon an author when the committee has deemed him/her to have produced enough literary works to merit this recognition (i.e. not necessarily annually).

Information about the award winners and the program will be provided soon. Please check back later.


The 2019 Annual Convention will be held April 2-5, 2019, at the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club & Spa in Point Clear.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 ALLA Convention in Point Clear!
