Kennesaw, Georgia, March 19, 2018—Members of the Georgia Peach Book Award for Teen Readers announced the Winner and Honor Book recipients during a luncheon presentation at the Kennesaw State University Conference on Literature for Children and Young Adults Monday afternoon. Each year, a committee of current Georgia high school media specialists/public library youth services staff reads widely to choose a list of 20 nominated titles. Then young adults choose books from among that list to read and rate.
