Help Pick the Minnesota Book Awards Readers' Choice Award

Here's your opportunity to vote for Minnesota's top book and help pick the Minnesota Book Awards Readers' Choice Award.

Any time during March, 2010, you can vote on the best Minnesota book from 2009. You can find the listing by visiting TwinCities.com and clicking on the green Minnesota Book Awards icon. (You may need to scroll down to find it.) You'll see a list of books and information grouped in categories including children's literature, general nonfiction, genre fiction, memoir & creative nonfiction, Minnesota, novel & short story, poetry, and young people's literature.

Read up on the books, read those that interest you, and vote for your favorite. All the voting takes place online. The winner will be announced at the Minnesota Book Awards gala on Saturday, April 17, 2010. For tickets or information, visit www.thefriends.org.

The Minnesota Book Awards is a project of the Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, in consortium with the Saint Paul Public LIbrary and the City of Saint Paul.
