All of the reviews of the Minnesota Book Award finalists have been posted. Sponsored each year by the Friends of the St. Paul Public Library, the award finalists were announced in March. SELCO staff and library staff from around the region contributed to our reviews of the 36 books in nine categories; Poetry, General Nonfiction, Children’s Literature, Genre Fiction, Young Adult Literature, Novel & Short Story, Memoir & Creative Nonfiction, Minnesota, and Middle Grade Literature.
Our thanks to all those who read and contributed reviews. You can find links to the brief reviews on our website or go directly to our MNBA 2017 playlist on SELCOtv. Winners will be announced Saturday, April 8, 2017 at a ceremony at the InterContinental Hotel St. Paul Riverfront and posted on the SELCO Facebook page as they are announced.
