Since 1953, AAUW of North Carolina has partnered with the NC Literary and Historical Association to present an award in recognition of the most significant work of original juvenile literature published over the course of the last year by a North Carolina author. 

This year’s recipient is a new children’s author, Halli Gomez. The title of her book is “List of Ten”.

Lil Van Order (Cape Fear Branch) serves as the Literature Representative for AAUW NC and is one of the judges of this award.  AAUW NC purchases one copy of the winning book for every branch to present to their local public library and the author’s books are available for sale at the Annual Conference in the spring (when we’re able to meet in person).
