COG Page to Screen Awards
Deadline: March 31, 2019
This year's COG Page to Screen Awards final judge is award-winning YA legend April Sinclair, whose debut novel Coffee Will Make You Black was named Book of the Year (Young Adult Fiction) by the American Library Association, received the Carl Sandburg Award, and established Sinclair as one of the first author-activists to amplify the voices of urban teens. Accordingly, Sinclair was voted the #43 Favorite Author of the 20th Century.
