The Boston Globe-Horn Guide Award committee (Liz Phipps Soeiro, Minh Lê, and our personal Katie Bircher as chair) is assembly quickly to make their ultimate decisions. Right here’s the plan the Globe and the Horn Guide have cooked as much as announce them.
On Thursday, Could 31st, Emily Procknal, President of the Boston Globe Basis, and I’ll announce the winners by way of Fb Stay from my workplace at midday. I don’t know how any of this works–my solely expertise with Fb Stay was being in my seat ready for a present to start and all of a sudden seeing my theater companion, who had absented her personal seat, Holding Forth on my telephone as she delivered, by way of Fb Stay, an eloquent plea for extra stalls in Broadway’s women’ rooms. However the folks on the Globe guarantee me it is going to be easy-peasy (in contrast to the state of affairs for feminine theatergoers) and I’ve promised to wash my workplace for the occasion.
The crack Horn Guide social media workforce will be tweeting out the information as Emily and I announce every winner, and a recording of the announcement and a press launch can be on our web site shortly thereafter. The BGHB Awards can be given out on the night of October fifth in a ceremony at Simmons School. I’m unhappy, if relieved, to let you know that we’ll not be conducting the Horn Guide at Simmons colloquium this yr, as a result of our workload being in any other case full up, however Cathie Mercier and I are planning a stand-alone colloquium (tentatively constructed across the subject of e-book analysis) for subsequent spring, and I’ll have extra to let you know about that early in 2019.
I do hope you’ll be a part of us for the announcement on Could 31st. Simply take your browser and your lunch to the Horn Guide’s Fb web page at midday.
