Nora Roberts Beats Out Al Gore for Literary Prize
If you didn’t heart Nora Roberts before for her writing, you have to love her for the speech she gave last night at the 3d Annual Quill Awards. Publisher’s Weekly and NBC teamed up to create the Quill Awards a few years ago with the intention of bringing “glamour and red carpet extravagance to the world of publishing.”
Roberts’ book, Angels Fall, was the voted as the best romance of the year, but last night it also took the book of the year. The freaking book of the year, folks. She beat out 18 other winners including Nobel Peace Prize winner, former Vice President Al Gore.
In her acceptance speech, Roberts said “Romance rocks.” So do you, Ms. Roberts.
