Diverse Book Awards (for academic libraries)


This guide, geared towards academic libraries, is a compilation of awards for diverse and diversity-related books written primarily for adult audiences (e.g. not children's or YA literature). The list includes some fiction and popular awards, but the majority focus on scholarly non-fiction. In most cases, award descriptions were taken directly from award web sites.

This compilation is a living document and will remain a continual work-in-progress.
