MLA 2023 Youth Literary Awards

On Friday, June 16 we announced the winners and honor books of the 2023 MLA Youth Literary Awards! MLA's Mitten, YouPer (Young Person) and Thumbs Up! Award workgroups have worked for thousands of hours throughout the year, reading reviewing, discussing and evaluating hundreds of books to find the very best books for Michigan youth that were published in 2022.

It is our pleasure to unveil the winners and honor books with our 2023 Youth Literary Awards video. Click here to view the announcement video on Facebook and give it a share and a like to help us promote these great books and the incredible work of our award committees.
