Book & Media Awards
Annually, the year’s best in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, audiobook narration, reference materials and more, are hand-picked by our expert selection committees that work closely with adult readers. Their tireless efforts narrow down hundreds of finalists to curate the highly regarded “Best of” lists used by librarians, publishers, and booksellers nationwide.
The Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction recognizes the best fiction and nonfiction books for adult readers published in the U.S. in the previous year and serves as a guide to help adults select quality reading material. These annual awards reflect the expert judgment and insight of library professionals who work closely with adult readers.
