On May 17, 2017, the NJ Center for the Book once again celebrated the Letters About Literature student contest sponsored by the Library of Congress. The program and reception, held at the Livingston Student Center on the Livingston Campus of Rutgers University, honored the 2017 New Jersey State Finalists. Notably, the event was also the occasion of the presentation of the Center’s Literary Landmark Award to The Star Ledger. Rosemary Parrillo, Managing Editor, received the Award in recognition of the newspaper’s outstanding contributions to the literary landscape of New Jersey for excellence in journalism, as acknowledged by a Pulitzer Prize.
