Best Nonfiction of 2018 Roundup

Next Monday is a big day in children’s literature. The winners of the American Library Association’s Youth Media Awards will be announced. So today seems like a good time to look back at some of the highly-regarded titles published last year.

There’s no doubt about it. 2018 was a phenomenal year for nonfiction, and it seems like more people were paying attention than ever before.
