Nominees have been unveiled for the 2020 Pannell Award, which is co-sponsored by the Women's National Book Association and Penguin Young Readers Group and honors bookstores that "enhance their communities by bringing exceptional creativity to foster a love of reading and books in children and young adults." One Pannell Award is given to a general bookstore and one to a children's specialty bookstore. Check out the complete list of this year's Pannell nominees here.
The Pannell Awards will be presented May 29 during the BookExpo Children's Book & Author Breakfast. Each of the two winners receives a $1,000 check and a framed signed original art piece from a children's book illustrator.
