Teens: National Book Award - Youth Literature


The National Book Award was first presented in 1950. At that time, authors in three categories were honored: Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry. In the ensuing years, the categories have changed and changed again, sometimes including literature for young people and sometimes not. Since 1996 however, the National Book Foundation has chosen to honor the writers of books for youth with their own category and prize. The winners of the award represent the very finest in writing for children and young adults.
