Friday Grab Bag: Award Nominees

We're putting the final touches on a new project that some might call madness, and we'll have all the details for you next week. We didn't want to leave you without a Friday post, so we're pulling together a list of titles that are up for one award or another!

First up The Oscars! The 85th annual Academy Awards will be presented this weekend on Sunday, February 24th. ABC has a full list of the nominees on their website, and many of the films are available for check out through Carnegie-Stout. Of course, many of the nominees are based on books that are also available for check out!
The long list for the second annual Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction were announced this month. This award is selected by the American Library Association, and will be awarded on June 30th during the annual convention. You can check out the whole list by following this link. Staff of Carnegie-Stout have reviewed two titles from the long list here on the blog: Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver and Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo.

The nominee list for the 2012 Nebula Awards were also announced this week. This award is given by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. The winners will be announced on May 18th, which gives you enough time to check out all of the nominees for Best Novel (all of which are available at Carnegie-Stout):
