A fine time was had by all at the presentation of the 2008 Orion Book Award, which took place on April 16 at Reeves Contemporary in New York City. Many thanks to all who attended, especially Cynthia Reeves for turning her gallery over to Orion for the evening, and David Grant and the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation for its support of the award.
