Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Women's National Book Association (WNBA) is seeking nominations for the 2010 Pannell Awards, honoring bookstores in the U.S. that excel at inspiring interest in reading and creatively bringing books and young people together.

WNBA will present the annual Pannell Awards to two bookstores -- one general bookstore and one children's specialty bookstore at BookExpo America 2010 in New York. Each winner will receive a check for $1,000 and a framed piece of original art by a noted children's book illustrator.

Nominations may be submitted to the Pannell jury either electronically or by sending hard copy materials by mail. Bookstores may nominate themselves.

Nominations should include:

  • The name, address, and phone number of the bookstore
  • The name and e-mail address of the contact person at the store
  • A brief reason (a sentence or two) of why the nominator believes the store is deserving of the Pannell Award
  • The nominator's name and affiliation to the nominated store

Nominations should be sent to the Pannell jury at [email protected]. The deadline for nominations is January 15, 2010.

Last year's winners were Kepler's Books and Magazines in Menlo Park, California, in the general category and The Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne, Vermont, in the children's category.
