Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned.
The Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction were established in 2012 to recognise the best fiction and nonfiction books for adult readers published in the United States during the previous year. The awards are quite distinct from the Carnegie Medal which has been awarded annually since 1937 to the writer of an outstanding book for children published in the United Kingdom.
The Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence are administered by the American Library Association (ALA) and are sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. There are one winner and two finalists in each category of fiction and non-fiction. The winning authors receive a $5,000 cash award, and two finalists in each category receive $1,500.
