The Great Stone Face Book Award is given annually to an author whose book receives the most votes from 4th through 6th graders throughout the state. In April N.H. children vote for their favorite book from a list of 25 recently-published titles that are chosen by the Great Stone Face (GSF) Committee. The purpose of the award is to promote reading enjoyment, to increase awareness of contemporary writing, and to allow children to honor their favorite authors.
The winner of the 2016 Great Stone Face Award was El Deafo by Cece Bell. Click here to find out the year’s full voting tally and what other titles were popular.
