    Monthly Newsletter

    Stay up-to-date with our monthly newsletter!



    This month, instead of everyone reading the same book, we will each read a book of your own choice, but one that falls within the reading challenge of: “Read a book written by a Booker Prize or National Book Award nominated author.”

    Check out the links below for ideas.

     

    Booker Prize

    The Booker Prize, first awarded in 1969, is a literary award conferred each year for the best novel written in the English language, which was published in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

     

    National Book Award

    The National Book Awards were established in 1950 to celebrate the best writing in America. Since 1989, they have been overseen by the National Book Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to celebrate the best literature published in the United States, expand its audience, and ensure that books have a prominent place in our culture. Although other categories have been recognized in the past, the Awards currently honors the best Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Translated Literature, and Young People’s Literature published each year.
