The 2008 Agatha Awards are given for materials first published in the United States by a living author during 2008, either in hardcover, as a paperback original, or e-published by an e-publishing firm. The Agatha Awards honor the “traditional mystery,” which contains no explicit sex or gratuitous violence, making these titles especially easy to recommend to young readers. The winners will be announced at the 2008 Agatha Awards banquet to be held on Saturday, May 2, 2009.
