Erin Entrada Kelly's “Hello, Universe" has won the John Newbery Medal for the outstanding children's book of 2017. The Randolph Caldecott Medal for best illustration went to Matthew Cordell and “Wolf in the Snow."

The awards were announced Feb. 12 by the American Library Association, which has gathered in Denver for its annual mid-winter meeting.

Other winners included Jacqueline Woodson, who received the Laura Ingalls Wilder award for lifetime achievement, and Nina LaCour, whose “We Are Okay" was given the Michael L. Printz Award for best young adult literature. Angie Thomas' “The Hate U Give," one of last year's top-selling young adult novels, was cited twice. It won a William C. Morris Award for best debut book for teens and an Odyssey Award for best audiobook.

Renee Watson's “Piecing Me Together" won the Coretta Scott King Award for outstanding book by an African-American. The King award for best illustrator went to Ekua Holmes for “Out of Wonder: Poems Celebrating Poets."
