11/8/2013 10:51:11 AM


(GIN) The National Museum of African Art in Washington, DC, will be the venue for the Children's Africana Awards and Book Festival on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 11 to 2 p.m. The annual event is sponsored by Africa Access, a nonprofit organization founded in 1989.

Africa Access, according to their website, "was founded to help schools, public libraries, and parents improve the quality of their children's collection on Africa." An online database, produced by Africa Access Review, contains 1000 annotations and reviews by university professors, libraries and teachers.

Since 1992, more than sixty awards have been presented to authors and illustrators. Also on the group's website are Best Books for Older Readers and Best Books for Young Children.

Partners for the book festival include the Library of Congress, TransAfrica, and the African studies programs of over a dozen universities. For more information, visit the website:
