“The 2022 Kansas Notable Books list recognizes 15 books written by Kansans or about Kansas,”

said Ray Walling, Acting State Librarian. "Readers can be transported back in time to the 1887 election in Argonia or to the epic battle of twin sisters enabled with superpowers facing a sinister force. This year’s titles include something for everyone..."

Each year, the Kansas Notable Books list features 15 books, published during the previous calendar year, which are about or set in Kansas, or written by a Kansas author. This year’s selection committee includes representatives of public, university, and school libraries, teachers, academics, and writers. 

Kansas Notable Books authors will be awarded their medals at the Kansas Book Festival on September 24 at Washburn University. 

Kansas Notable Books is a project of the KS Center for the Book, a program at the St Lib. of KS

(state affiliate, Library of Congress Center for the Book). For the full press release, click  HERE.
