Archives - Teenreads Monthly Update

Whew, it's been another fabulous month of young adult book events for me! I am going to start with the National Book Awards, which were announced last night. In case you are not familiar with these awards, the National Book Award ceremony is the biggest night in the book world, when we celebrate the best books of the year in five separate categories: Young People's Literature, Translated Literature, Poetry, Nonfiction and Fiction. I was there to cover the event, and hearing the winners announced firsthand while being in a room with all that energy about books made it a night to remember.
