Happy anniversary, CSK!

As you know (and if you don’t, you must be new here 😉), the Coretta Scott King Book Awards celebrate their 50th anniversary this year, and the Horn Book’s annual special issue is themed around that anniversary. We are honored to have a roster of more than thirty African American authors, illustrators, scholars, and other luminaries as contributors of essays (and art) on the awards’ origins, history, personal significance, and promise for the future.

The CSK 50th anniversary gala and yearly awards breakfast will be held at ALA Annual in June, and between now and then we’ll be highlighting pieces from this very special issue as well as from our archives. Here’s a cheat sheet to everything available thus far; much more to come.

For more, click on the tag CSK Awards; see also our booklists about the lives and legacies of Coretta Scott King and Martin Luther King Jr.

Single copies of this special issue are available for $15.00 including postage and may be ordered from:
