Longlists of fiction and nonfiction candidates have been announced for this year's Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence. These awards were established in 2012 by the Carnegie Corporation and the American Library Association in to recognize the best fiction and nonfiction books written for adult readers and published in the U.S. the previous year. The selection committee is made up of library professionals who work closely with adult readers and Nancy Pearl is the committee chairperson! The six-title shortlist—three each for the fiction and nonfiction medals—will be announced in late April, and the two winners will be announced at the ALA Annual Conference on June 30th in Chicago.
