“The Nevada Writers Hall of Fame is a time to celebrate the works of Nevada authors,” Dean of University Libraries and Teaching & Learning Technologies, Kathlin Ray said. “Robyn’s historical and contemporary romance novels, as well as her suspense novel, non-fiction work, short stories, articles and even screenplays demonstrate she is well worth celebrating! We look forward to honoring the many contributions Robyn has made to further strengthen Nevada’s rich and vibrant literary landscape.”
Adding to the excitement of this year’s event, Netflix has announced it is currently producing a 10-episode series based on Robyn’s Virgin River series. It is set to premiere in late 2019 or early 2020.
“I’m completely honored and humbled by this prestigious award,” 32nd annual Nevada Writers Hall of Fame inductee Robyn Carr said. “It is an honor and a thrill to be inducted into the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame. Regardless of their setting, all my stories start in Nevada, the state where I’ve made my home for so many years and the place that continues to inspire me as a writer and storyteller every day. To be recognized and celebrated as a Nevada writer truly means the world to me.”
