Here’s a list of the last ten years’ worth of books which have won Coretta Scott King Awards, with links to the copies available through the library. This should make it easier to find these important titles. I’ll add older titles and of titles by award-winning illustrators as the month goes on.
2013: Hand in Hand: Ten Black Men Who Changed America (Andrea Davis Pinkney) – BOOK
The Coretta Scott King Award is given annually to both authors and illustrators to honor outstanding children’s and teen books by African-Americans reflecting the African-American experience. The first award was given in 1974, so there’s quite a list to come. If you need help getting one of these books (or any book), just talk to one of our librarians, and we’ll be glad to help you.
