In 1983, the WNBA established the WNBA Pannell Awards to recognize and publicly applaud the work of booksellers who stimulate, promote and encourage children’s and young people’s interest in books, in honor of Lucile Micheels Pannell, a founding member of one of the WNBA chapters.

This year’s awards will be given out formally at BookExpo America (May 30th – June 1st), during the Children’s Book and Author Tea.

Congratulations again to all the winners and nominees!
