Iowa Book Award Winners from the IASL

Here are the 2011 - 2012 winners, as announced at the IASL meeting. According to Sarah Latcham, who is head of the Awards Committee...

"The new 2012-2013 books have not been delivered by Perfection Learning, yet, but will be out soon so libraries that ordered through the IEC bid may not have many of the books already. Students can begin reading for the next list anytime. Voting for 2012-2013 will open again in late February or early March 2013 with the deadline at the end of March and the winners announced at the next IASL conference in the spring."
