The 2021 Great Stone Face Book Award Winner Announcement!

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 20 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.

For more information, the mission statement and selection criteria are available, and you can learn more about the GSF Committee if you are interested in joining.

The winner of the 2021 Great Stone Face Award is Wildfire by Rodman Philbrick. Click here to find out the year’s full voting tally and what other titles were popular.
