MAUD HART LOVELACE BOOK AWARD

Maud Hart Lovelace was a Minnesota author who grew up in Mankato, Minn. Her Betsy-Tacy books tell of her childhood in the town she calls "Deep Valley." Each year since 1980, the year of her death, there has been a Minnesota reading contest for 3rd-8th graders. A committee comprised of teachers and librarians selects the titles for the contest each spring, and students read the books on the list during the following school year. In March the students vote on their favorite book from the list, and on April 25, the anniversary of Maud's birthday, the winner is announced. Learn more about the Maud Hart Lovelace Book Awards.
