Looking for some great fiction or nonfiction? We’ve created a special literary mixtape linking to free samples of books that made the shortlist of American Library Association’s (ALA) Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction.
The winners will be announced at the 2014 ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas in June. The winning authors will receive $5,000 and the four finalists will each receive $1,500.
Below you can find samples of the shortlist for both nonfiction and fiction.
