Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction & Nonfiction

Charge

The Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction, first awarded in June 2012, are awarded to the author of the best book for adult readers in two categories-fiction and nonfiction. Two additional authors shortlisted in each of the categories will be named finalists. The winning authors and finalists will receive cash prizes ($5,000 and $1,500 each respectively). The award is co-sponsored by Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) and Booklist, with the long and shortlists of selected titles being drawn from the annual RUSA CODES Notable Books List and Booklist's Editors' Choice lists.
