The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), the fastest-growing division of the American Library Association, has just announced the winners of the 2008 Alex Award, for adult books with specific teen appeal. The awards, sponsored by Booklist, were just announced at the 2008 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia, and Jeff Lemire’s Essex County (Vol 1): Tales From The Farm was one of the winners. The last graphic novel to make this list was Persepolis, and that was several years ago. You can read the preview pages from Tales From The Farm, as well as the other volumes of Essex County online just by visiting: Top Shelf Comics
