The Kerrytown BookFest has named Robin and Jamie Agnew, owners of Aunt Agatha’s Mystery Bookstore, as the winners of the 2017 Community Book Award. This annual award honors a local who helps create and retain a vital book culture.

The Mystery Writers of America also honored the Agnews in 2013 with the Raven Award, given for service to the mystery community outside the realm of creative writing.

According to Kerrytown BookFest Board President Lynn Pellerito Riehl, “(we)  would not be celebrating our 15th anniversary if Robin and Jamie Agnew had not put time, effort and love into this event, and we are forever grateful to them for giving so much time to such an important Ann Arbor experience… They are most deserving of this award and we hope they know how much the community has appreciated their efforts.”
