About The Boston Globe - Horn Book Awards

The Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards are a set of American literary awards conferred by The Boston Globe and The Horn Book Magazine annually from 1967. One book is recognized in each of three categories: Fiction and Poetry, Nonfiction, and Picture Book.

The original awards consisted only of the Fiction and Picture Book categories.  Later the Nonfiction category was added.  The Fiction Category name has changed back and forth from Fiction to Fiction & Poetry but covers the same group of books.
