In its sixth year, the Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction are celebrated at ALA’s Annual Conference in Chicago. Hand-picked by our expert selection committee of librarians, independent booksellers and book reviewers that work closely with adult readers, these books have made a lasting impression. Join us for this celebratory event with featured speaker, Sara Paretsky, and a chance to mingle with the winning authors, Matthew Desmond and Colson Whitehead during the dessert and drinks reception. These awards are cosponsored by Booklist and RUSA and supported by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. This year’s event is sponsored by NoveList. Tickets can be purchased at 2017.alaannual.org/ticketed-events with code RUS1.
