The 2017 ORCA winners will be announced, as will the lists of the 2018 nominees. Booktalks, book trailers, book club discussion guides, and additional resources will help you become familiar with the titles so you can promote them to the students at your libraries and schools.

A physical copy of each title will be available for your perusal, as well as bookmarks of the 2018 lists.
