Very exciting news, friends! The nominees for the first annual Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction have been announced, and Lost Memory of Skin by Russell Banks is among the amazing works selected! The shortlist was chosen by a seven-member selection committee of library professionals from across the country chaired by Nancy Pearl.
As I'm sure you all know, this is the first time ALA has offered single-book awards for adult trade fiction and nonfiction. The winning titles will be announced at a special event at the ALA Annual Conference on Sunday, June 24, in Anaheim, CA, so be sure to get your ticket now!
Also, I recommend checking out the video of Nancy Pearl announcing the winners...
Congratulations to all the nominees!
