We have brought together an incredible group of talented people to serve the inaugural Excellence in Graphic Literature Awards. They come from the far corners of the continental U.S. and represent a wide range of voices and professions: School Librarians, K-12 Educators, Public Librarians, Academics, Independent Retail, and Industry Professionals.
Many of these jurors have played critical roles in the development of the graphic novel category while for others this may be their first time on a jury panel. The ideal for this is that we grow the field of experts that in turn, continues to grow the graphic novel world.
Each jury is comprised of seven members and is led by a chair person and assistant chair.
