Posted on behalf of Sonja Somerville of the Salem Public Library (with slight modifications for publication on the blog):
Thank you for the MANY, MANY nominations for the 2018 Book Rave, honoring excellent books published between November 1, 2016 and October 21, 2017. It is now time for the members of OYAN to vote via Google Form (check your email for details!). The goal is to identify a varied list that includes middle grade and high school books, books of various genres, and books that represent diverse perspectives. We also try to include at least one book by an Oregon author and/or with an Oregon setting, so some of these qualities are noted along with the title and author of the books.
Please vote for any book you feel is worthy of recognition. There is a field at the end of each section for you to note particularly strong support and an opportunity to make a case of you feel that a book should NOT be included for some reason. In the event that two books by the same author are among the top vote-getters, only one book by that author will be chosen.
Voting will continue through Tuesday, January 23. The results will then be brought to the January OYAN meeting for further discussion.
Thanks for voting!
