For more than 60 years, the North Carolina Literary and Historical Association has administered this award (formerly known as the AAUW Juvenile Literature Award) to be presented to a North Carolinian for the best example of juvenile literature published in the previous year.
This year the 65th AAUW NC award was presented, in collaboration with the NC Literary and Historical Society, to Carole Boston Weatherford for her book Schomburg, The Man Who Built a Library. Carole has written more than two dozen children’s books. Remarkably, she is receiving the AAUW NC award for the third time. She is also a poet, currently working as a professor of English at Fayetteville State University. We hope you’re looking forward to meeting her and getting her book for your community library at the Annual Conference in March.
