Schneider Family Book Award

The Schneider Family Book Award is an award given by the American Library Association (ALA) recognizing authors and illustrators for the excellence of portrayal of the disability experience in literature for youth.[1] There is a category for children's books, books appealing to middle grade readers and for young adult literature.[2][3] The award has been given since 2004.[4] The award was founded by Dr. Katherine Schneider, who was the first blind student to graduate from the Kalamazoo Public School system.[5] Schneider had been helped through school as a child by a librarian at the Michigan Library for the Blind who provided books in Braille to her.[5] The award is given out annually and the winners are announced at the ALA Midwinter Meeting.[6]
