We have a newly updated booklist available at the library and here on the blog: Jefferson Cup Winners 2015. Each year, the Virginia Library Association awards the Jefferson cup to distinguished biography, historical fiction, or American history books for children and young adults. The awards are given to a book for older readers and a book for younger readers. Learn more about the winners at the VLA’s webpage: Jefferson Cup Award.
