Young Adult Literature: Diversity Awards

For anyone looking for excellent Young Adult Literature, especially award winners, available at TCU.

About the Awards

The American Library Association gives book awards in several categories that honor diverse populations and cultures in young adult and children's literature. I have selected a few of these awards to highlight and include in the TCU Library Collection.

The Corretta Scott King Awards are given to African American authors and illustrators who demonstrate an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values.

The Schneider Family Book Awards honor an author or illustrator for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience for child and adolescent audiences.

The Pura Belpre Book Award is presented annually to a Latino/Latina writer and illustrator whose work best portrays, affirms, and celebrates the Latino cultural experience in an outstanding work of literature for children and youth.

 The Stonewall Book Awards honor books for exceptional merit relating to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender experience.
