Martha V. Parravano, Executive Editor of the Horn Book Magazine, introduces Megan Whalen Turner, who accepts the 2010 Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Award for Fiction for A Conspiracy of Kings at the October 1st award ceremony at Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts.
First presented in 1967, the Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards are among the most prestigious honors in the field of children's and young adult literature. Winners are selected in three categories: Picture Book, Fiction and Poetry, and Nonfiction. The winning titles must be published in the United States but they may be written or illustrated by citizens of any country. The awards are chosen by an independent panel of three judges who are annually appointed by the editor in chief of the Horn Book.
