With over 300,000 new books published every year in the United States alone, how do you decide which ones to read? Just because a book appears on a bestseller list does not guarantee that it will be an outstanding read or quality literature. When selecting a book, you might consider a title that has been awarded a literary prize. Here are some of the most well-known awards, along with examples of past winners. (Complete lists of winners can be found on the websites of each award organization.)
Get started on your award-winning reading journey now. Join us for the book discussion of The Underground Railroad on Friday, June 9, at 10:30 a.m. in the Quiet Study at Sedona Public Library. This # 1 New York Times bestseller from Colson Whitehead won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the National Book Award in 2016. Seating is limited; reserve your space by contacting Cheryl Yeatts at 928-284-1603 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
