Final Week Feature: Iowa State Award Nominees 2020 - 2021

In this month's Final Week Feature, we'll be taking a look at the Iowa Children's Choice Award and Iowa Teen Award nominees for the coming school year.

Like we've seen in the past, many of the titles on both lists are books that may already be familiar to readers. Certainly, there are some popular authors on the lists! Two of the ICCA books--Harbor Me and The Unteachables--have been popular with students for the last few years. And on the ITA list, authors Laurie Halse Anderson and Brandon Sanderson will be welcome sights! Also on both lists for the coming year are graphic novels--like New Kid, Illegal, and Speak--as well as novels in verse, which continue to be popular with DCGMS readers.

You can see all of the nominees in the slides below, and be ready to take a more in-depth look at the titles in the fall. Remember: If you read two of the books from the lists, you're eligible to vote in the spring for the statewide winner.
