The Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence 2018

 

The Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction were established in 2012 to recognize the best fiction and nonfiction books for adult readers published in the U.S. the previous year. The winners (one for fiction, one for nonfiction) are announced at an event at the ALA Annual Conference; winning authors receive a $5,000 cash award, and two finalists in each category receive $1,500.

Finalists and longlisted titles for both fiction and nonfiction are listed below.  The 2018 Carnegie Medal winners will be announced on February 11, at the American Library Association's Midwinter Meeting in Denver.
