In its eighth year, the Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction are celebrated at ALA's Annual Conference. Hand-picked by our expert selection committee of librarians, independent booksellers and editors that work closely with adult readers, these books have made a lasting impression. Join us for this celebratory event with featured speaker, Laura Lippman, best-selling author of Sunburn, After I'm Gone and I'd Know You Anywhere, and a chance to mingle with the winning authors Rebecca Makkai and Keise Laymon during the dessert and cash bar reception. These awards are sponsored by Booklist and RUSA and supported by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. This year's event is sponsored by NoveList.
