Edited Book Award
Awarded annually by the Children's Literature Association to recognize an essay collection that makes a distinct or significant contribution to our understanding of youth literature from a literary, cultural, historical or theoretical perspective. To be eligible, works must be published, book-length, edited collections written in English exclusively by the authors whose names appear in the list of contributors and the editor(s) whose name(s) appear on the title page. These works must also bear the copyright date of the year under consideration. Biographical studies and studies of films or other media texts are eligible. New editions of previously published books and volumes with a primarily pedagogical focus are not eligible.
