Speaking of exemplary international books, USBBY congratulates the OIB 2021 selection committee for their dedicated and thoughtful work in selecting this truly outstanding representation of what the publishing world had to offer the U.S. market this past year, as well as the authors, illustrators, publishers, and book promoters who created and distributed those works.
Committee chair Anamaría Anderson says, "I want to thank everyone involved, including publishers and their reps, and especially our committee members, for their commitment to this project during an extraordinarily challenging year!"
