The Stonewall Book Awards Program will be FREE and open to all this year.  Join in celebrating the winning and honored authors Monday, June 29, 2015 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm in the Moscone Convention Center 3005 (W).

A fitting end to GLBT Book Month, the very best in GLBT literature will be recognized at the 2015 Stonewall Book Awards Program. Sponsored by the ALA Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table (GLBTRT), the Stonewall Book Awards is the first and longest enduring book award series for GLBT literature. The award recognizes English-language works of exceptional merit relating to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender experience in children’s and young adult literature, literature, and non-fiction. Since the award’s inception in 1971, more than 150 titles have been honored.

You may have read this year’s Stonewall Young Adult Honor books, Jandy Nelson’s I’ll Give You the Sun and Susan Kuklin’s Beyond Magenta, for the 2015 Hub Reading Challenge—  so add the event to your ALA Scheduler:, and we hope to see you there.
