Book & Media Awards 

The Book & Media Awards will be streamed virtually on the LLX Studio stage. Annually, the year’s best in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, audiobook narration, reference materials and more, are hand-picked by our expert selection committees that work closely with adult readers. Their tireless efforts narrow down hundreds of finalists to curate the highly regarded “Best of” lists used by librarians, publishers, and booksellers nationwide.
