Award of $500 to a California author to recognize an outstanding book for children or young adults that focuses on California and its people. The award is intended to promote interest in the stories of the State of California, its history and its future.

The prize of $500 and an engraved plaque are presented to the recipient during the CLA Beatty Award/California Young Reader Award (CYRM) luncheon. The luncheon also provides the author with a forum to speak about his/her book and provides an opportunity for attendees to meet the author during a book signing.

Though only one book is selected for the Beatty Award, all other books are evaluated for possible inclusion in the “Eureka! California in Children's Literature” bibliography.



Books must be published in the United States during the preceding year.

Please send title suggestions and books for review (copies for all committee members if possible, please) as soon as possible and no later than January 31, 2017, to the contact below.

The 2017 recipient will be announced during National Library Week, April 9-15, 2017.
