The Michael L. Printz Award for Excellence in Young Adult Literature

Printz Award annually honors the best book written for teens, based entirely on its literary merit, each year. In addition, the Printz Committee names up to four honor books, which also represent the best writing in young adult literature. The awards announcement is made at the ALA Midwinter Meeting as part of the Youth Media Awards and is celebrated with a program and reception each year at the ALA Annual Conference.

The award's namesake was a school librarian in Topeka, Kansas, and a marketing consultant for Econo-Clad, as well an active member of YALSA. He had a passion for books and reading. Librarians who wish to buy seals can find them in the ALA Online Store. Award Policies and Procedures Suggest a Title Committee Information Who Was Michael L. Seals Winners and Honor Books.

Teen Librarian Toolbox. I was dismayed to discover that the number of multicultural books published hasn’t increased during the last 18 years despite census data that shows 37% of the US population consists of people of color.

This graphic is from Lee and Low publishers. I have posted a large number of book lists for kids focusing on multicultural books (some my own creations but others that I’ve happily discovered) but I know that my search capability in my blog is not that great. I am organizing them all here in hopes that more people will read multicultural children’s books. Hopefully this will spark an interest that will lead to more books depicting people of color being published.
