The Dolly Gray Children’s Literature Award will be presented on January 22, 2020 at the Council for Exceptional Children’s Division on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (DADD) international conference in Sarasota, Florida. The award will be presented to Gill Lewis, author of The Scarlet Ibis.
The Dolly Gray Award recognizes high quality fiction/biographical books for children, adolescents, and young adults that authentically portray individuals with developmental disabilities.
The Dolly Gray Children's Literature Award Special Collection at the Harold B. Lee Library on the Brigham Young University campus in Provo, Utah houses all books considered for the award since its inception in 2000, and is likely to be the most complete collection of children’s books that include individuals with developmental disabilities. A list of all books eligible for the award, procedures, and submission guidelines are available on the Dolly Gray Children’s Literature Award website.
