Have you heard about NCCD’s Media for a Just Society Awards yet? This year is our 20th of recognizing media whose work furthers public understanding of adult justice, juvenile justice, child welfare, and adult protection issues. We’re especially excited this year to present the Distinguished Achievement Award in Nonfiction to Andrew Solomon for his bestselling book Far From the Tree.

Have you heard about NCCD’s Media for a Just Society Awards yet? This year is our 20th of recognizing media whose work furthers public understanding of adult justice, juvenile justice, child welfare, and adult protection issues. We’re especially excited this year to present the Distinguished Achievement Award in Nonfiction to Andrew Solomon for his bestselling book Far From the Tree. Malcolm Gladwell calls Far From the Tree “brave and ambitious,” while President Bill Clinton observes, “This remarkable new book reminds us that nothing is more powerful in a child’s development than the love of a parent.”
