Each year The Friends of the St. Paul Public Library present the Minnesota Book Awards to authors, in nine separate categories: Children’s Literature, General Nonfiction, Genre Fiction, Memoir & Creative Nonfiction, Poetry, Young Adult Literature, Minnesota Nonfiction, Novel & Short Story, and Middle Grade Literature. SELCO in turn sponsors author tours featuring both winning and nominated authors at member libraries. In addition, SELCO also offers Book Club in a Bag kits for each year’s winners. These can be checked out through your local library.
