The California Library Association's John and Patricia Beatty Award honors the author of a distinguished book for children or young adults that best promotes an awareness of California and its people. Together the Beattys wrote eleven books of fiction for young readers and it was Patricia Beatty's hope that the award will encourage the writing of quality children's books that bring us an awareness of California, its heritage or its future. On Thursday, May 13, during the CLA Conference, winning authors of the CLA Beatty Award and California Young Reader Award
(CYRM) will have an opportunity to speak about his/her book and an opportunity for attendees to meet the author.
