Know a great book or news story?

From the Robert F Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights...

Dear Friends,

Every year, the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award and RFK Journalism Awards recognize outstanding writing and reporting on issues that reflect Robert Kennedy's concerns, including human rights, social justice, and the power of individual action in the United States and around the world.

The Book and Journalism Awards are the RFK Center's longest-standing programs. The Book Award is recognized as one of the most prestigious awards an author can receive. The Journalism Awards program is the largest of its kind and one of the few in which winners are determined by their peers.

By honoring authors and journalists who cover social justice and human rights, we shine a light on these underreported issues and encourage in-depth reporting and writing that can expose, educate, inspire, and effect positive change.

We are approaching the deadline for nominations for the 2010 Book and Journalism Awards, and we need your help. If you know of an important work released in 2009 that covered a social justice or human rights issue, we want to hear about it.

The deadline for entries is February 1. Submissions are judged by a panel of experienced journalists, authors, and editors. There are awards for student journalists as well as professionals.

Books, newspaper articles, TV news segments, radio series, web articles, photo essays, and editorial cartoons published, printed, or broadcast for the first time in 2009 are eligible.

Thank you for your help.
