Earlier this week, at ALA Midwinter in Philadelphia, the American Library Association Council approved the new Lemony Snicket Prize for Noble Librarians Faced with Adversity.
The award will be presented annually at the ALA conference to a librarian who "has faced adversity with integrity and dignity intact." Lemony Snicket claims that the $3,000 prize will be given from his "disreputable gains, along with an odd, symbolic object from his private stash, as well as a certificate, which may or may not be suitable for framing."
