YALSA Nonfiction: Confidentiality

Some YALSA meetings are open to the public.

Awards like the YALSA Nonfiction Award? Not so much.

Here, (from the YALSA website), Confidentiality: “There will be no announcements of nominated titles until the announcement of the finalist titles in early December. When the winning title and honor titles are announced at the ALA Midwinter Meeting, the list of nominated titles will be published as well.”

Next week: Nominations.
