All ALA Midwinter Meeting attendees are invited to this free event to celebrate the year’s best in adult reading and reference at RUSA’s Book and Media Awards Ceremony. The event will take place Sunday, January 27, 5-7 pm and is sponsored by NoveList. Selections are made by library professionals who work closely with adult readers, and offer an excellent guide to quality reading and library collection enhancement.
For the fourth year, the much anticipated winners of the Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction will be announced during this conference highlight. As always, RUSA will also unveil the Notable Books List, Reading List and Listen List selections as well as the Sophie Brody Medal and the Dartmouth Medal will be awarded and celebrated later with the winners!
The literary winners announced at this event will shape the author panel for RUSA’s Literary Tastes program at ALA’s 2019 Annual Conference in Washington DC. More information about the award winners and the Literary Tastes will be available on RUSA Update following the January event.
For those who cannot attend, information about this year’s winners will be posted on RUSA Update and Tweeted via @ala_rusa during and immediately after the event using the hashtag #alabma. Readers are sure to leave with their To-Be-Read lists full!
