Throughout the award year, the Center develops a list of "Must Reads" in each of four award categories -- fiction, nonfiction, poetry & children's/young adult literature -- that have been written by Massachusetts writers or about Massachusetts themes. In addition, the Center names and promotes an award winner in each of the categories .
