Each year, the YMCA's Downtown Writers Center recognizes the best books published by CNY authors through the CNY Book Awards. Awards are currently presented in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Each category is judged by an acclaimed author from outside of our region, to ensure impartiality. Finalists are named each fall, and the CNY Book Awards themselves are presented live at the Awards Reception.
