2020 Oregon Book Awards

Due to the ongoing public health crisis, we will not be hosting our 33rd Annual Oregon Book Awards Ceremony at Portland Center Stage at The Armory on June 22. However, we are excited to announce that the Oregon Book Awards Ceremony will take place in a different format. Tune in to OPB at 7:00 p.m. on June 22 for a special half hour episode of ‘The Archive Project’ where we will celebrate the finalists and announce the winners.
