Rainbow Book List

Book Suggestions

Book Suggestion Requirements

Books considered for the bibliography are to have been published in the United States, within the assigned calendar year or between July 1 and December 31 of the previous calendar year (e.g. Books to be considered for the 2021 Rainbow Book List must be published between July 1, 2019 and December 31, 2020). Submissions from the general public must be provided by September 30 to be considered for the current year’s consideration. Recommendations for books to consider will not be accepted from the publisher of a proposed book, agents or representatives of the author, or anyone else who may stand to gain directly from the recommendation of the book.

Jury members of the Rainbow Book List Committee may not recommend a book that they have contributed to, edited, or in any other way been affiliated with, or recommend a book coauthored or edited by a member of their immediate family or anyone with whom they currently share a household.
