NEW YORK (AP) -- Readers and critics love Anthony Doerr's "All the Light We Cannot See." And so do librarians.

Doerr's World War II novel, a best-seller awarded the Pulitzer Prize in April, has won the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction. The Carnegie Medal for nonfiction was given to Bryan Stevenson's book on the criminal justice system, "Just Mercy." The prizes were announced Saturday night by the American Library Association and were presented at a ceremony in San Francisco. Each winner received $5,000.

The awards selection committee was chaired by Brad Hooper, an editor for the American Library Association's review magazine Booklist.

The medals were established in 2012 and were sponsored in part by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
