The South Asia National Outreach Council announces the Inaugural South Asia Book Awards.
The two 2012 Award Books are Same, Same but Different by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shawn (Henry Holt and Company), and Island's End by Padma Venkatraman (G.P. Putnam's Sons, division of Penguin Young Readers Group). Out of the thirty submissions for this year's award, four books were selected as Honor Books, and five additional books were recognized as Highly Commended books. The award information can be found on SABA's new website: www.southasiabookaward.org.
The announcement of the award winners, honor books and other commended titles is attached. We will circulate an annotated version of the list widely, to inform teachers, librarians and others about the fine books available dealing with South Asia and South Asians living in the diasporas. Please help spread the news of the award with your center community!
We plan to present the award in conjunction with the 41st Annual Conference on South Asia at the Overture Center in Madison, Wisconsin on Saturday, October 13, 2012, 6-8:30pm.
