The Kansas Notable Books List is the annual recognition of 15 outstanding titles either written by Kansans or about a Kansas related topic. The Kansas Notable Book List highlights our lively contemporary writing community and encourages readers to enjoy some of the best writing of the authors among us.
Kansas Notable Books is a project of the Kansas Center for the Book, a program of the State Library. Throughout the award year, the State Library promotes and encourages the promotion of all the titles on that year’s list at literary events, and among librarians and booksellers.
One such event to promote the Kansas Notable Books was started by the First Lady Mary Brownback. The Kansas Book Festival began in 2011. A year later the first round of Kansas Book Festival Library Grants were awarded with a total of nearly $15,000 being distributed to public and school libraries across the State. The Wamego Public Library was awarded one of these grants in 2105 for technology.
The Kansas Book Fair will be held this year at the state capital on Saturday, September 12th. Many of the notable authors will be on hand to talk about and autograph their books.
Through a non-competitive grant offered by the State Library, the Wamego Public Library currently has all the notable books for 2016 and the previous years as well.
