For more than 60 years, the North Carolina Literary and Historical Association has administered this award to a North Carolinian for the best example of juvenile literature published in the previous year.

The book will also be celebrated at the 2016 AAUW NC annual meeting:

  • Each branch attending the meeting will receive one copy to take back to their public library.
  • Additional copies will be available for purchase as part of the meeting registration.
  • Ms. Dowell will join us for part of the meeting.
