Awards Dinner: tickets on sale
The Australian Romance Readers Association is pleased to announce the eight annual Australian Romance Readers Awards will be presented at a special dinner, to be held at Cellos Restaurant, at the Castlereagh Hotel, Sydney, from 7.00 pm to 11.30 pm on Saturday 19 March 2016.
All fans of romance fiction are invited to attend and help us celebrate the very best of romance fiction from 2015.
The award finalists were announced earlier today. You can find the full list here.
Shannon Curtis will be our MC for the evening. Those who attended our awards dinner in 2014 will remember Shannon as one of the ‘detectives’ for the evening. Rest assured there will be no murder and mayhem at this year’s dinner. Instead we have a very special guest—a reader!
We are delighted to announce that Kat Mayo will be our guest speaker for the evening. Kat runs the Book Thingo blog and is very active in the romance community. Kat has been a moderator at our conventions, a presenter at RWA conferences, newsletter editor at Booktopia, has done podcasts for Destiny Romance and has written for Books+Publishing. And that’s just the highlights. We have asked Kat to speak about her experiences in the romance community—we think it will be fascinating.
Tickets for the dinner are now on sale. Tickets are $89 for ARRA members and $99 for non-members. (Members, the discount code has been emailed to you.) Ticket price includes a three-course meal, drinks and door prizes.
You can buy your tickets here.
Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment. Ticket sales will close on 11 March 2016 (unless sold out earlier).
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our generous sponsors, who make these awards possible:
Harlequin Australia • eXtasy Books • Hachette Australia • Booktopia
