About the Florida Awards

The Florida Book Awards, established in 2006, is an annual awards program that recognizes, honors and celebrates the literature by Florida authors and books about Florida published in the previous year. Authors must be Florida residents, except in the Florida nonfiction, cooking, and visual arts categories, where the subject matter must focus on Florida. 2016 is the first year I have put in my Libguide as it is the first year the two categories younger and older children's literature were introduced. Previous to 2016, there was only one category called Children's Literature.
