The 2006 Christy Award Winners

Christy Award symbolIt was a remarkable evening to celebrate excellence in Christian Fiction through the Christy Awards. The various editors and authors gathered in the room read like a Whos Who of Christian fiction. While I attended the banquet, I don’t want to list a lot of names for fear I will leave someone out.

Here are the nominees and the winners of the 7th annual Christy Awards. They were presented on July 8th at the Denver Marriott City Center. The winner in each category is highlighted in maroon.
