Our Mission

The Coretta Scott King Book Award Committee Blog has been created to promote, recognize and celebrate quality literature by African American children’s authors and illustrators. Authors, illustrators and books which have been identified and honored through the CSK jury process will be highlighted. This blog will capture the excitement of the award announcements, acceptance speeches, and ALA conference events, including celebrations specific to the CSK Committee. In addition, the blog will provide a forum for sharing interviews with CSK award winners and ways in which CSK award-winning books are shared with young people in reading related activities and programs.
