On Saturday, July 9, Bouchercon hosted the reveal of the new design for the Anthony Award—a design which will be used each year from now on as opposed to having each new Bouchercon design a specific award for their host year. The new design pays homage to Anthony Boucher, writer, critic, and namesake for the convention. I love the pipe and bowtie!
I was pleased to be one of four authors selected as guests for the video presentation, along with Gigi Pandian, David Heska Wanbli Weiden, and Louise Penny—good company indeed! And look for cameos by Hilary Davidson, Lori Rader-Day, and Shawn Cosby, and… I’ll have to watch again to make sure I didn’t miss anyone! (You should watch too—here.)
Thanks to Kim Keeline for inviting me to be part of the reveal, to Rae James for hosting the reveal party, and to everyone involved in the new design and announcement.
