  • Opportunities to promote the winning title
  • Inclusion in a full-page spread in Library Journal, one of America‚Äôs oldest and most renowned trade publications for library news

Each book that is submitted to the contest must be:

  • Independently published
  • In the category of adult or young adult fiction
