The Lemony Snicket Prize is $10,000 given annually to a librarian who has faced adversity with integrity and dignity intact. It is administered by the American Library Association (ALA). "It is of the opinion of Lemony Snicket, author, reader, and alleged malcontent, that librarians have suffered enough...It is Mr. Snicket's hope, and the ALA's, that the Snicket Prize will remind readers everywhere of the joyous importance of librarians and the trouble that is all too frequently unleashed upon them." The award will be presented during the Awards Reception at the ALA Annual Conference.
