Get to know the authors we have recognized

34th Annual Nevada Writers Hall of Fame

Relive the event

On the evening of Thursday, November 18th, 2021, we gathered virtually to celebrate the 2021 Nevada Writers Hall of Fame honorees, inductee Steven Nightingale and Silver Pen Winner Vogue M. Robinson.  Hosted by authors and Silver Pen winners Michael Branch and Mark Maynard, the evening showcased a variety of talent from the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame family, including Gailmarie Pahmeier, Chris Coake, Emma Sepulveda, Phyllis Barber, John L. Smith, Matthew O’Brien, Shaun Griffin, Lindsay Wilson and others.  In addition, singer/songwriter Deborah Levoy performed two beautiful songs, both written in collaboration with Steven Nightingale.  We were pleased to showcase Reno’s newest brewery, Wonder Aleworks, as they shared how to mix this year’s signature cocktails, the Nightingale and the Vogue. If you missed the live event, please enjoy the recorded version and we’ll see you November 3rd, 2022 for the 35th Annual Nevada Writers Hall of Fame.
